Astro-images taken through a telescope on a tracking mount provide breathtaking color and detail that you just can't see with your eyes alone. The astro-images on our web site demonstrate the imaging capabilities of the products used and are not intended to represent what you will see when you look through a telescope.
A very affordable 10" telescope, capable of capturing incredibly deep images, the Orion 10" f/3.9 Newtonian reflector astrograph is an amazing performer. The coatings are 94% reflective, and the 2" dual speed crayford focuser is rock solid.

In the Orion ED80 Apo Refractor, images appear extremely sharp with no false color. This telescope is suited for viewing both planetary and deep-sky objects as well as for astrophotography. Perfect for the intermediate observer or astrophotographer.
