The Orion Apex 90mm Maksutov-Cassegrain telescope is both high power and compact - perfect for the beginner for both astronomy and terrestrial viewing. The correct-image finder scope makes locating objects a cinch.
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 solar filter fits the Orion StarMax, Apex 90, and Meade ETX-90. The 4.10" Orion Full Aperture Solar Filter is a must for safely viewing or photographing the sun's surface. Provides more contrast and more natural color than Mylar filters.
The Orion 1.25" Astrophotography Flip Mirror is a real time saver. It allows you to find and focus your target visually through an eyepiece instead of by tediously taking pictures. Focus through the eyepiece, then flip the mirror for photographing.
The Orion EZ Finder II Telescope Reflex Sight makes aiming your telescope easy. The red adjustable brightness LED dot shows you exactly where your telescope is pointed. Includes a bracket that fits the dovetail mounting base on many Orion telescopes.
