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 Orion Solar Filter fits Meade 10" Schmidt-Cassegrains allowing you to safely observe or image the sun. The glass filter is better than mylar because it improves contrast (more natural yellow-orange color rather than blue) and is more durable.
Want to replace your existing rack-and-pinion focuser on your Orion reflector? The 2" Orion Crayford-Style Focuser is a good upgrade and provides smooth, accurate focusing. Very easy to install and lets you easily achieve the sharpest possible focus.
