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.
This table top 90mm Maksutov-Cassegrain is a lightweight and compact telescope for the beginning viewer that you can take anywhere. The red dot finder scope makes it easy to find objects in the sky. The mount can also be attached to a photo tripod.
The 25mm Orion Sirius Plossl Eyepiece is a low powered eyepiece that is ideal for viewing deep space objects. It is ideal for all types of telescopes and has a wide apparent field of view that provides extremely sharp high contrast images.
If you're looking for more powerful views through your 2" telescope eyepieces, this 2" 2x Barlow Lens is an ideal accessory. Install any 2" eyepiece in the 2" 2x Barlow to double the eyepiece's magnifying power. Requires 54mm additional back focus.
