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.
With its high 74% quantum efficiency, the StarShoot AutoGuider Pro will "guide" you to capturing better pictures. This multipurpose monochrome device is primarily designed for autoguiding, but also performs as a high-quality astrophotography camera.
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.
The Orion Sirius EQ-G GoTo Telescope Mount is less hefty than the Orion Atlas but with the same drive motors, electronic features, and functionality. This mount can hold up to a 30lb load and allows you to select from 42,900 objects in the database.
