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.
For the advanced astrophotographer, the Orion Sirius 8 EQ-G GoTo telescope allows you to capture sharp clear images. Over 42,000 celestial objects can be located wirth pushbutton ease and a built-in ST-4 port makes guided astrophotography easy.
This Orion Solar Filter fits many 8" SCTs, allowing you to safely observe or image the Sun. The glass filter is better than mylar because it improves contrast (more natural yellow-orange color rather than blue) and is more durable.
Have you ever wanted to take a picture of what you were viewing through your telescope? The Orion SteadyPix Deluxe Camera Mount lets you! It securely holds most point-and-shoot cameras up to an eyepiece for afocal photography of celestial objects.
