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.
Superb high-power performance, compact lightweight design, sharp high-contrast view, and clearly defined astrophotography capabilities make the Orion 180mm Maksutov-Cassegrain perfect for the advanced planetary observer or astrophotographer.
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.
