If you have a DSLR camera, astro-imaging is an excellent and rewarding function to add to its repertoire. Take gorgeous and accurately guided shots of the night sky and of our nearest celestial neighbors in the solar system with our Orion Stars and Solar System Bundle and your DSLR camera! Our ED80T CF Triplet 80mm ED refractor, StarShoot AutoGuider, Deluxe Off-Axis Guider, and solid SkyView Pro GoTo mount combine forces with your DSLR camera to capture stunning skyscape images for you to share with friends and family. DSLR camera not included.

The included ED80T CF with its 480mm focal length (f/6.0) and fast, unobstructed triplet objective featuring ED optics virtually eliminates chromatic aberrations making the ED80T CF an excellent candidate for astrophotography use when used with the SkyView Pro GoTo EQ mount and your DSLR camera. The relatively small size and light weight of the ED80T CF telescope makes it perfectly portable for imaging expeditions to dark-sky locations. The retractable dew shield makes the ED80T CF even more compact for storage and transport, with a length of 14.3" with the dew shield fully retracted. The telescope measures 18.25" when the dew shield is fully extended to minimize peripheral glare and dew accumulation while imaging.

Designed for the serious amateur astronomer, the included heavy-duty Orion SkyView Pro GoTo mount offers stability and the precision control you need to acquire amazing astro-images. With the included SkyView Pro GoTo system, this popular mount effortlessly guides your telescope to over 42,900 celestial gems, and accurately tracks them so you can take extended exposures. Other great features include an azimuth fine-adjustment and latitude scale for easier polar alignment, large lever locks for the right ascension and declination axes, and tripod leg extensions. The telescope mount accepts an optional polar-axis finder scope, and requires a 12V DC power supply for operation, such as the Orion Dynamo Pro.

The included Orion StarShoot AutoGuider provides a user-friendly, dedicated autoguiding system for long-exposure astrophotography. It’s compatible with the autoguider port on our SkyView Pro GoTo system, and comes with the software and cables needed to work right out of the box! The AutoGuider’s sensor is a high-resolution, 1/2" format 1.3-megapixel CMOS monochrome chip, with 5.2µ x 5.2µ pixels for highly accurate guiding. The chip resides in a super-compact, anodized aluminum housing that measures just 2.5" wide by 2.35" long and weighs a mere 4.4 ounces. It has a 1.25" nosepiece that can be removed to access a T-thread interface.

Rounding out the Orion Stars and Solar System Astrophotography Telescope Bundle is our Orion Deluxe Off-Axis Guider, which lets you image and guide with the same telescope! This streamlined solution will reduce setup time, save weight on your SkyView Pro GoTo mount and eliminate any tracking problems associated with mirror shift or tube flexure. The Deluxe Off-Axis Guider accommodates most imaging cameras and telescopes with sufficient inward focus travel (59mm required).

If you wish to use the ED80T CF refractor telescope for visual applications between DSLR astrophotography sessions, a 2" Orion Refractor Mirror Star Diagonal is included. The ED80T CF will amaze you with sharp, clear views of celestial delicacies. You can use either 2" or 1.25" telescope eyepieces thanks to a step-down 2"-to-1.25" adapter.

This capable astrophotography package is offered at a great value - you save more than $275 compared to buying each included item separately!

  • Orion ED80T CF 80mm refractor telescope optical tube assembly (OTA)
  • Orion SkyView Pro GoTo EQ equatorial mount and tripod
  • Orion StarShoot AutoGuider
