Bad astigmatism. Is the Dioptrx system any good?

I have bad astigmatism. I think I would require a 4.0 correction. I believe 3.50 the strongest correction Tele Vue makes. 

They are not huge money ($120 or so) but no one needs another pricey trinket if it does not meet expectations. 

Thoughts?

I have used them since Televue introduced them. They work great. They fit most of the Televue models, some requiring adapters, and will also work with some competitor eyepieces as well.

As for 4.0 diopters, I would give Al a call. He would be the one to speak to regarding your situation.
