First time at astrophotography.
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 Orion SkyView Pro Equatorial Telescope Mount is an affordable heavy duty mount that supports tubes up to 20lbs. With the dual slow-motion knobs you have fine manual control or add an optional clock drive or full Go-To kit for added functionality.
The Orion 4.57 inch solar filter allows you to safely observe or image details on the surface of the sun. The glass filter material is more durable than Mylar and offers a more natural yellow-orange color.
