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 Apex 90mm Maksutov-Cassegrain telescope is both high-power and compact - perfect for the beginner for both astronomy and terrestrial viewing. The correct-image finder scope makes locating objects easy.
The Orion Sirius EQ-G GoTo Telescope Mount is less hefty than the Orion Atlas but with the same drive motors, electronic features, and functionality. This mount can hold up to a 30lb load and allows you to select from 42,900 objects in the database.
Attach the Orion EQ-3M Dual-Axis Electronic Telescope Drive to a compatible Orion or Celestron equatorial mount and you can track celestial objects automatically, without needing to touch the mount once you've found and centered the object.
The Orion 1.25" Astrophotography Flip Mirror is a real time saver. It allows you to find and focus your target visually through an eyepiece instead of by tediously taking pictures. Focus through the eyepiece, then flip the mirror to take a picture.
