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.
Capture images of the Moon, planets, and Sun with the Orion StarShoot Solar System Color Imager IV. Small pixels provide exceptional resolution, and the included software allows the astrophotographer to process the images for fantastic results.
The 3x Orion Tri-Mag Barlow Lens delivers a 3x magnification boost to your eyepiece. It is great for lunar and planetary observing and perfect for extracting higher powers from short-focal-length telescopes which can be hard to magnify high enough.
