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 SkyView Pro 8 is great for the intermediate astronomer. Images are much brighter and sharper than with a 6" reflector. The large focal length allows you to resolve fine detail at high powers. It can be upgraded to GoTo at any time.
The Orion SkyView Pro Equatorial Telescope Mount is an affordable heavy duty mount that supports tubes up to 20lbs. With the dual slow-motion knobs you have fine manual control or add an optional clock drive or full Go-To kit for added functionality.
Compact, all-in-one autoguiding solution with everything you need to optimize astrophotography accuracy. Includes Mini 50mm guide scope, StarShoot AutoGuider, adjustable bracket, and more. Works with photographic telescopes up to 1500mm focal length.
