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.
You can put the EQ-2M Orion Electronic Telescope Drive System on a compatible Orion or Celestron equatorial mount and track celestial objects automatically. The hand controller has 2 speeds and a pause mode which make observing easier.
For easy one-handed tracking of celestial objects use the Orion EQ-2 Equatorial Telescope Mount. It is perfect for any small telescope or spotting scope and can accept an optional EQ-2M electronic drive for automatic tracking of objects.
