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.
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.
For safely viewing the sun through a telescope, this solar filter is perfect. The 6.58" ID Orion Full Aperture Solar Filter fits the Orion SpaceProbe 130 and provides more contrast and more natural color than a Mylar filter.
