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 SkyView Pro 8 GoTo allows you to view deep sky objects and planets in fine detail. 8" reflector optics gather more light than 6" reflector telescopes. The computerized GoTo will find over 42,000 celestial objects at the push of a button.
