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.
Do you already own an equatorial mount? Add the Orion 254mm optical tube to get vivid, close-up views of deep-sky and solar system objects. This telescope includes a prime-focus camera adapter for astrophotography.
This 2" Orion SkyGlow Astrophotography Filter is designed for deep sky astrophotography in light polluted skies with a CCD or DSLR camera. It enhances contrast and preserves neutral color balance, eliminating the need for extra color processing.
If you're looking for a heavy duty GoTo mount for all your observing or astrophotography needs, the Orion Atlas EQ-G computerized GoTo telescope mount is perfect. It supports up to 40lbs and finds over 42,900 celestial objects with pushbutton ease.
