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.
This compact large-aperture f/5 refractor telescope is perfect for wide-field views and deep-sky pursuits. Weighing in at just 8.6 pounds, the 120mm f/5 Refractor OTA makes a great portable telescope for astronomers on-the-go.
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.
Convenient & compact Deluxe Mini 50mm Guide Scope features helical fine-focus mechanism to allow for faster, more precise guide star focus. Designed for use with the StarShoot AutoGuider (sold separately) and telescopes up to 1500mm in focal length.
The Orion StarShoot is an easy-to-use, affordable autoguider for long-exposure astrophotography. Plug it into an autoguider port on your mount and let it do the work for you. It comes with the software and cables needed to work right out of the box!
