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 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.
This easy-to-use mounting bracket securely holds your point-and-shoot camera or smartphone right up to your telescope's 1.25" eyepiece, at the perfect position and focus point, allowing you to capture high-magnification pictures of the night sky.
