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.
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.
To easily transition filters for tri-color RGB or LRGB astrophotography, just load up to 7 filters into the Orion Nautilus Motorized Filter Wheel and use the control software to change filters automatically.
