I got started in astronomy as a young kid with my dad looking through the telescope at the moon, planets, and stars. By far the best objects are galaxies, because you are looking at them as they were millions of years ago.

Orion StarShoot Deep Space Monochrome Imaging Camera III Processing: C-Munipack Exposure: 75x80 sec Notes: This was my first time doing photometry and I wanted to see if my equipment could get a exo-planet transit.
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.
Featuring a monochrome imaging CCD chip, the affordable and TEC-cooled Orion StarShoot G3 Monochrome Imaging Camera is capable of performing advanced tri-color imaging techniques when used with proper LRGB or narrowband astrophotography filters.
