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.
The Orion SpaceProbe 130ST reflector telescope is perfect for the more serious beginner or intermediate stargazer. With a 130mm parabolic primary mirror, the 130ST provides great views of deep-sky objects on the included EQ-2 mount and stable tripod.
The 25mm Orion Sirius Plossl Eyepiece is a low powered eyepiece that is ideal for viewing deep space objects. It is ideal for all types of telescopes and has a wide apparent field of view that provides extremely sharp high contrast images.
Having trouble viewing details on the Moons surface? This neutral-density eyepiece filter reduces glare so you can see more detail and surface features. The 1.25" Orion 13% Transmission Moon Filter is especially useful with large aperture telescopes.
