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 Min-EQ Tabletop Equatorial Telescope Mount is perfect for traveling or camping. Just set up your small telescope on this mount and you can view for hours from anywhere. Also makes a great tracking platform for astrophotography with a DSLR.
