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.
A very affordable 10" telescope, capable of capturing incredibly deep images, the Orion 10" f/3.9 Newtonian reflector astrograph is an amazing performer. The coatings are 94% reflective, and the 2" dual speed crayford focuser is rock solid.
