Canon EOS 60D Processing: Photoshop Exposure: 1 x 15 min Other Equipment Used: Orion Awesome Autoguider Notes: My first eyepiece viewing of the Orion Nebula complex was enough to push me over the edge and get a real astrophotography kit. This shot was taken on my first night using the Orion Atlas and 8" Astrograph -- out of the box, they took amazing images. I can't wait for more clear skies to see what else I can capture!
Our 8" aperture deep-sky imaging specialist has features usually reserved for much pricier astrophotography telescopes. The 8" f/3.9 Newtonian Astrograph features nine internal baffle rings, a recessed and reinforced focuser, and exceptional optics.
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.
If you're looking for a heavy duty GoTo mount for all your observing or astrophotography needs, the Orion Atlas EQ-G computerized GoTo telescope mount is perfect. It supports up to 40lbs and finds over 42,900 celestial objects with pushbutton ease.
