Orion StarShoot Solar System Color Imaging Camera IV Notes: I got into astronomy after I read a book I found sitting in my house. I decided to go outside and look up at the stars, since that moment astronomy has been my main interest and my main focus. I'm still kind of a beginner, although I have done astrophotography and quite a bit of deep space viewing. I am enjoying doing lunar and planetary astrophotography, but i'm really looking forward to doing deep space photography soon. I just gotta find a way to afford the camera first. But yea, orion has really helped me pursuit my interest and will further my viewing of the night sky until the day I die.
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.
Capture images of the Moon, planets, and Sun with the Orion StarShoot Solar System Color Imager IV. Small pixels provide exceptional resolution, and the included software allows the astrophotographer to process the images for fantastic results.
The Orion StarBlast 4.5 EQ Reflector is a perfect family telescope. The short focal length allows you to see more of the sky, which makes it easier for beginners to find objects. The adjustable tripod makes this a good choice for the whole family.
