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 Orion ShortTube 80 is perfect being used as a guide scope with a CCD autoguider. It is a compact scope with optics that deliver bright wide-field images. This product is just the tube assembly with no accessories.
