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.
The EQ-1M Orion Electronic Telescope Drive System can be put on any compatible Orion or Celestron equatorial telescope mount for tracking celestial objects automatically. It makes observing easier and more fun.
The 1/4"-20 Orion Adapter for EQ-2 Mount provides a threaded 1/4"-20 post for easy and secure attachment of cameras, spotting scopes, small telescopes, and binoculars to the Orion EQ-2 equatorial mount. Great for taking star-trail astrophotographs.
