A very affordable 10" telescope, capable of capturing incredibly deep images, the Orion 10" f/3.9 Newtonian reflector astrograph is an amazing performer. The coatings are 94% reflective, and the 2" dual speed crayford focuser is rock solid.
If you're looking for a heavy duty GoTo mount for all your observing or astrophotography needs, the Orion Atlas EQ-G computerized GoTo telescope mount is perfect. It supports up to 40lbs and finds over 42,900 celestial objects with pushbutton ease.
Use this complete autoguiding solution to add tracking accuracy to any astrophotography set-up. Includes everything you need to autoguide: ShortTube 80 guide scope, StarShoot AutoGuider, guide scope rings & plate, and extension tube.
The Orion 2" 13% Transmission Telescope Moon Filter reduces the glare from the moon so you can see more detail and surface features. This filter is especially useful in large-aperture telescopes since the moon's brightness can be overwhelming.
