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.
This affordable full-aperture solar filter for 6" Orion reflectors is made with high-quality Baader Astro Solar Safety Film for safe observation of sunspots, solar eclipses and planetary transits of the Sun through a 6" aperture telescope.
Having trouble viewing details on the Moons surface? This neutral-density eyepiece filter reduces glare so you can see more detail and surface features. The 1.25" Orion 13% Transmission Moon Filter is especially useful with large aperture telescopes.
The 17mm Orion Sirius Plossl Eyepiece is ideal for broad-field lunar observations, medium-sized star clusters, and a wide range of nebulas. It is great for all types of telescopes, and with its wide field of view you get sharp, high contrast images.
