Orion StarShoot Pro V2.0 Deep Space Color CCD Imaging Camera Exposure: 14 x 300 second images combined Other Equipment Used: Celestron f/6.3 Reducer-Corrector for Schmidt-Cassegrain
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.
Add this to your favorite astrophoto mount setup and the Celestron EdgeHD800 OTA produces crisp, clear images. The telescope is great for the advanced to expert astrophotographer for capturing planetary detail, or the faintest of galaxies.
Can't see the entire object in your telescope? The Celestron f/6.3 Reducer-Corrector for Schmidt Cassegrains converts the focal length so you get a wider field of view as well as shorter exposure times for astrophotography with your CCD camera.
