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.
Have you ever wanted to take a picture of what you see through the telescope? Try the Orion SteadyPix Universal Camera Mount. It connects a digital or film camera up to the eyepiece to capture images of the Moon, planets or bright deep-sky objects.
