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 AstroView 120ST Equatorial Refractor Telescope provides great wide-field high contrast images for the intermediate observer or astrophotographer. It is perfect for viewing or photographing the moon, planets and even deep-sky objects.
The Orion AstroView Equatorial Telescope Mount is heavy-duty and can support up to a 5" refractor tube. The head has enclosed worm gears and slow-motion controls. Includes an adjustable aluminum tripod, polar alignment scope and accessory tray.
Attach the Orion EQ-3M Dual-Axis Electronic Telescope Drive to a compatible Orion or Celestron equatorial mount and you can track celestial objects automatically, without needing to touch the mount once you've found and centered the object.
