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 VersaGo II Altazimuth Mount is very stable yet light weight and portable at an affordable price. The tripod has a load capacity of 15lbs and is perfect for small to medium sized telescopes up to 6" aperture. A great grab-and-go tripod.
