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.
If you're looking for a heavy duty GoTo mount for all your observing or astrophotography needs, the Orion Atlas EQ-G computerized GoTo telescope mount is perfect. It supports up to 40lbs and finds over 42,900 celestial objects with pushbutton ease.
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.
