Orion ED80 80mm f/7.5 Apochromatic Refractor Telescope
Canon 300D (modified with Baader UV/IR filter) Processing: Photoshop Exposure: 4 x 1/500 Other Equipment Used: Hutech IDAS LPS filter Notes: This image is a stack of 4 iso400 1/500th images. Cropped to make subjects larger for submission. Taken under breezy skies with the jet-stream overhead. Even the Jovian bands are visible in the full-size 8 and 16bit versions (just barely, but visible, indeed!).
I am very happy with this little 80mm refractor. Barely perceptable CA on very bright stars (after 300s exposure!) - no CA with visual or short exposures, using 40mm and 20mm 70deg FoV Explore Scientific eyepieces. Can't wait to try some tricolor with this scope!
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.
In the Orion ED80 Apo Refractor, images appear extremely sharp with no false color. This telescope is suited for viewing both planetary and deep-sky objects as well as for astrophotography. Perfect for the intermediate observer or astrophotographer.
