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.
Extra-narrowband filters will help you produce striking, high-contrast color astrophotos of emission nebulae with a monochrome CCD camera. This imaging filter provides 90% transmission at H-alpha line of 656.3nm with a very narrow bandpass of 7nm.
Compact, all-in-one autoguiding solution with everything you need to optimize astrophotography accuracy. Includes Mini 50mm guide scope, StarShoot AutoGuider, adjustable bracket, and more. Works with photographic telescopes up to 1500mm focal length.
