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 safe viewing of the sun, the Meade Coronado Personal Solar Telescope is perfect. This H-alpha scope reveals dramatic prominences, flares, and other solar phenomena. Very light weight, this scope only requires a small tripod for support.
If you're looking for a heavy duty GoTo mount for all your observing or astrophotography needs, the Orion Atlas EQ-G computerized GoTo telescope mount is perfect. It supports up to 40lbs and finds over 42,900 celestial objects with pushbutton ease.
The 2.5x Tele Vue Powermate is parfocal in All 1 1/4" diagonals and prisms making it better than a standard Barlow. It stands less than 3" out of your focuser and with fully multi-coated lenses you get bright high contrast images.
The 1/4"-20 Adapter couples small telescopes to the dovetail saddle of VersaGo, AstroView, SkyView Pro, Sirius, and Atlas Mounts. This telescope mount adapter provides a threaded post for attaching telescopes equipped with a 1/4"-20 threaded socket.
