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.
For safe viewing of the sun through a telescope you need a solar filter. This Orion Solar Filter provides better contrast and more durability than a Mylar filter. This filter fits all Orion 10 inch reflector telescopes.
For safe viewing of the sun, the Meade Coronado Personal Solar Telescope is perfect. This H-alpha scope reveals dramatic prominences, flares, and other solar phenomena. Very light weight, this scope only requires a small tripod for support.
