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.
The SkyQuest XT10 is a very affordable intermediate Dobsonian telescope. The stable base and included EZ Finder II make it easy to move the telescope and find objects. Its 10"-aperture parabolic primary optics gather a lot of light for bright views.
For safe viewing of the sun through a telescope you need a solar filter. This Orion Solar Filter provides better contrast and more durability than a Mylar filter. This filter fits all Orion 10 inch reflector telescopes.
