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.
The Orion EZ Finder II Telescope Reflex Sight makes aiming your telescope easy. The red adjustable brightness LED dot shows you exactly where your telescope is pointed. Includes a bracket that fits the dovetail mounting base on many Orion telescopes.
