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.
This adjustable bracket holds almost any "candy bar" or "slate" type smartphone directly over a telescope's eyepiece, allowing high-power photography through the telescope. Now, anyone with a telescope and a smartphone can be an astrophotographer!
This mighty 5x Barlow will easily meet the magnification demands of any telescope system. The Orion High-Power 5x 4-Element Barlow Lens quintuples the power of any 1.25" telescope eyepiece, providing far more magnification than a 2x or 3x Barlow.
Would you like more contrast and less glare while viewing the moon and bright planets? The 1.25" Orion Variable Polarizing Telescope Filter reduces both and brings out details. And you can adjust the amount of light transmission for the perfect view.
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.
