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 StarBlast 4.5 EQ Reflector is a perfect family telescope. The short focal length allows you to see more of the sky, which makes it easier for beginners to find objects. The adjustable tripod makes this a good choice for the whole family.
Have you ever wanted to take a picture of what you were viewing through your telescope? The Orion SteadyPix Deluxe Camera Mount lets you! It securely holds most point-and-shoot cameras up to an eyepiece for afocal photography of celestial objects.
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.
