I bought my first set of real astronomical equipment from Orion in Nov. 2012. I'm pleased with my Orion Equipments and Orion's excellent services.

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.
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.
