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 impressive Maksutov-Newtonian imaging telescope rivals the performance of more costly instruments, at a fraction of the price. The Orion 190mm Mak-Newt delivers crisp and detailed views and images of even the faintest deep-sky objects.
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!
