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.
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 Tele Vue Paracorr type 2 coma corrector eliminates or reduces coma in reflector telescopes as fast as f/3. Works visually or photographically, and the top is tunable to optimize the performance with any eyepiece and telescope combination.
