This Orion 203mm Reflector optical tube is perfect for those intermediate observers who already own an equatorial mount. Use the included camera adapter and attach this to your favorite DSLR or CCD camera to begin your astrophotography journey.
The SteadyPix iPhone adapter securely couples any iPhone to a 1.25" eyepiece so you can take high-magnification pictures through the telescope with the iPhone's built-in camera. Lets you use your iPhone as a mini telescope display monitor!
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.
Keep your astronomy gear powered in the field during lengthy observing sessions with an Orion Dynamo Pro 17 Ah Rechargeable 12V DC Power Station. This 17 amp-hour Dynamo provides 40% more power storage than our 12 Ah model, and has a ton of extras.
