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.
In the Orion ED80 Apo Refractor, images appear extremely sharp with no false color. This telescope is suited for viewing both planetary and deep-sky objects as well as for astrophotography. Perfect for the intermediate observer or astrophotographer.
The EQ-3M Single-Axis Orion Electronic Telescope Drive provides regulated sidereal-rate tracking in right ascension when attached to your equatorial mount. The hand controller features 2x and 8x sidereal speeds.
