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.
The 5x Tele Vue Powermate is ideal for long focus CCD and film photography and is a high performance alternative to eyepiece projection. It is parfocal in all 1.25" diagonals and prisms making it better than a standard Barlow.
