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.
The Orion Sirius EQ-G GoTo Telescope Mount is less hefty than the Orion Atlas but with the same drive motors, electronic features, and functionality. This mount can hold up to a 30lb load and allows you to select from 42,900 objects in the database.
Use this complete autoguiding solution to add tracking accuracy to any astrophotography set-up. Includes everything you need to autoguide: ShortTube 80 guide scope, StarShoot AutoGuider, guide scope rings & plate, and extension tube.
The Orion StarShoot is an easy-to-use, affordable autoguider for long-exposure astrophotography. Plug it into an autoguider port on your mount and let it do the work for you. It comes with the software and cables needed to work right out of the box!
The Orion ShortTube 80 is perfect being used as a guide scope with a CCD autoguider. It is a compact scope with optics that deliver bright wide-field images. This product is just the tube assembly with no accessories.
The 1.25" Orion Eyepiece Extension Tube provides 2" of extra focuser back travel sometimes needed to achieve focus for short-range terrestrial viewing. Includes 2 locking thumbscrews and is threaded for filters.
This 105mm ID Pair of Orion Guide Scope Rings will attach to a mounting plate for Orion guidescopes of up to 80mm aperture. Each ring has three black nylon alignment screws which will not scratch the guidescope finish.
