Looking for a high-end collection of astrophoto gear to combine to take amazing quality images of the night sky? We've put together some of the best products of our lineup into a package at a great discount for the ultimate in deep-sky astrophotography. The Orion HDX 12" Truss RC Ultimate Astro-Imaging Package is an observatory caliber package of products and includes everything you need for imaging everything from faint nebulae, galaxies, star clusters, and even the moon and planets.

The system is centered around the Orion 12" Truss Tube Ritchey-Chretien Astrograph which utilizes hyperboloid primary and secondary mirrors made of low-expansion quartz glass with 96% reflectivity for bright imaging performance. This exquisitely engineered telescope is optimized for large-aperture astrophotographic excellence and will take your imaging pursuits to a whole new level!

Next, we've paired the 12" optical tube with the Orion HDX110 EQ-G GoTo Equatorial Mount and Pier, a truly massive mount designed to hold the heaviest of equipment. Providing exceptionally low, typically +/-3 arcsecond tracking before correction (PEC) and a massive 110-lb. instrument capacity, the big Orion HDX110 EQ-G Mount offers demanding observers and astrophotographers unprecedented accuracy and performance for the price.

For imaging the night sky, we've included the Orion StarShoot G10 Deep Space Color Imaging Camera as an excellent match to the optics of the 12" RC. This one-shot color CMOS chip excels at seeing very faint objects in a short exposure, and adjustable gain means you can boost the sensitivity in a given exposure. Imagine how much easier it is to stack a series of short exposures, which lead to less problems with guiding or satellites or airplanes ruining an individual shot. The sensitivity of the IMX294 chip is fantastic, allowing you to push the gain higher while still maintaining minimal noise.

Equatorial mounts require precision polar alignment to work their best, so we've included the StarShoot P1 Polar Alignment Camera. The P1 performs a precise polar alignment in just a few minutes time, with an accuracy of up to 30 arcseconds. The camera is pre-focused, has an 11x8 degree field of view, and is sensitive enough to easily see Polaris, Sigma Octans, and several stars around the pole. Yes, it works in both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres! And once you've polar aligned and are ready to image, the included StarShoot AutoGuider Pro & 60mm Guide Scope Package locks onto a nearby star, ensuring a sharp photograph with tight round stars.

And finally, you'll need a way to power the setup through the night while you take your exposures, so we've also included the Orion Dynamo Pro 155Wh AC/DC/USB Lithium Power Supply. A perfect companion to the HDX and G10, this impressively versatile 3.3-lb. lithium power supply features three 12V DC ports, three USB ports, and one three-prong AC output port to keep all your equipment running in the field. A total of three female cigarette socket adapters are included with this package.

If you've been waiting for the ultimate package to image the night sky and want nothing but the best equipment to do it, the Orion HDX 12" Truss RC Ultimate Astro-Imaging Package is a collection of our favorite gear, bundled together for you to enjoy under the stars!
