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.
Do you already own an equatorial mount? The Orion 254mm optical tube provides vivid, close views of deep-sky and solar system objects. This telescope includes a prime-focus camera adapter for astrophotography.
The Orion SkyView Pro Equatorial Telescope Mount is an affordable heavy duty mount that supports tubes up to 20lbs. With the dual slow-motion knobs you have fine manual control or add an optional clock drive or full Go-To kit for added functionality.
The Orion TrueTrack DC drive system provides dual-axis control for high-power viewing and photography with the SkyView Pro mount. It allows you to choose from 3 different speeds as well as a pause mode as well as sidereal tracking for total control.
