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.
Featuring a monochrome imaging CCD chip, the affordable and TEC-cooled Orion StarShoot G3 Monochrome Imaging Camera is capable of performing advanced tri-color imaging techniques when used with proper LRGB or narrowband astrophotography filters.
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 Orion StarShoot is an easy-to-use, affordable autoguider for long-exposure astrophotography. Plug it into an autoguider port on your mount and let it do the work for you. It comes with the software and cables needed to work right out of the box!
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.
