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.
Capture images of the Moon, planets, and Sun with the Orion StarShoot Solar System Color Imager IV. Small pixels provide exceptional resolution, and the included software allows the astrophotographer to process the images for fantastic results.
The SpaceProbe 130EQ is an affordable beginner telescope. The classic long-tube Newtonian design allows for all around great performance. The EQ-2 mount is very sturdy and you can add the optional electronic drive for automatic tracking.
You can put the EQ-2M Orion Electronic Telescope Drive System on a compatible Orion or Celestron equatorial mount and track celestial objects automatically. The hand controller has 2 speeds and a pause mode which make observing easier.
