Having trouble viewing details on the Moons surface? This neutral-density eyepiece filter reduces glare so you can see more detail and surface features. The 1.25" Orion 13% Transmission Moon Filter is especially useful with large aperture telescopes.
For safely observing the sun through an Orion ShortTube 4.5 and SkyQuest XT4.5, you need the 5.81" ID Orion Solar Filter. This filter allows you to see details on the sun's surface and provides more contrast and natural light than Mylar filters.
The Orion LensPen Mini Pro Cleaning Tool is specially designed to clean any lens surface. It has a retractable natural hair brush for large particles on one end and a flexible cleaning tip equipped with chamois pad for smudges on the other end.
The Orion VersaGo II Altazimuth Mount is very stable yet light weight and portable at an affordable price. The tripod has a load capacity of 15lbs and is perfect for small to medium sized telescopes up to 6" aperture. A great grab-and-go tripod.
Would you like more contrast and less glare while viewing the moon and bright planets? The 1.25" Orion Variable Polarizing Telescope Filter reduces both and brings out details. And you can adjust the amount of light transmission for the perfect view.
The 1.25" dielectric mirror star diagonal angles the eyepiece to a comfortable viewing position, while dielectric coatings give you brighter images compared to a standard star diagonal. The harder surface from the coatings also makes cleaning easier.
