Orion Awesome AutoGuider Refractor Telescope Package
Orion 8" f/3.9 Newtonian Astrograph Reflector Telescope
Canon XSi DSLR modified Processing: DSS & PS-CS3 Exposure: 40 x 180 sec Notes: Love the fast optics of the 8" Orion Astrograph. So easy to capture color. Difficult to use other OTA's after using the Astrograph.
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.
Our 8" aperture deep-sky imaging specialist has features usually reserved for much pricier astrophotography telescopes. The 8" f/3.9 Newtonian Astrograph features nine internal baffle rings, a recessed and reinforced focuser, and exceptional optics.
Use this complete autoguiding solution to add tracking accuracy to any astrophotography set-up. Includes everything you need to autoguide: ShortTube 80 guide scope, StarShoot AutoGuider, guide scope rings & plate, and extension tube.
