The top and bottom got cut off because I need a focal reducer and I don't have a drive, so this was a hand guided attempt.
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 Orion AstroView Equatorial Telescope Mount is heavy-duty and can support up to a 5" refractor tube. The head has enclosed worm gears and slow-motion controls. Includes an adjustable aluminum tripod, polar alignment scope and accessory tray.
