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.
Our 8" aperture deep-sky imaging specialist has features usually reserved for much pricier astrophotography telescopes. The 8" f/3.9 Newtonian Astrograph features nine internal baffle rings, a recessed and reinforced focuser, and exceptional optics.
