The Orion Multiple-Filter Wheel holds up to five 1.25" filters allowing you to change filters without removing your telescope eyepiece or camera. It allows astrophotographers to shoot sequentially without interruption for RGB and LRGB photography.
The Orion StarShoot is an easy-to-use, affordable autoguider for long-exposure astrophotography. Plug it into an autoguider port on your mount and let it do the work for you. It comes with the software and cables needed to work right out of the box!
For producing striking, high-contrast color CCD astrophotography of emission nebulae with a monochrome CCD camera, you should use extra-narrowband filters. The 1.25" Orion Extra-Narrowband Hydrogen-Alpha filter is one of a set of three filters.
