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 Nautilus Motorized 2" Filter Wheel allows you to load up to 4 filters and then use the control software to change filters automatically. A great time saver for RGB and LRGB astrophotography with monochrome cameras.
The 2" Orion LRGB Astrophotography Filter Set contains 4 must haves for beautiful astrophotos: Red, Blue, Green, and Luminance IR cutoff , all in a protective case. The filters are parfocal which eliminates the task of refocusing between exposure.
