Capturing a breath taking image with a telescope used to be very difficult, and it required somewhat expensive astronomy equipment to do the job right. Thanks to Orion Telescopes and other astronomy product dealers, things aren’t what they used to be. Better amateur astrophotography equipment is being mass produced now more than ever. The result is that consumers have access to more options and superior astrophotography products for a fraction of the cost as compared to just 5 years ago. The astrophotography market is growing and the constant addition of newer and better astrophotography equipment at affordable price points means more people are getting into this hobby. In other words, the industry is sort of going through a big bang of its own!
Buy-Telescope.com just published new information regarding the latest Orion Mini Autoguider package that was recently made available to consumers. In addition to its affordability, Buy-Telescope.com reports that it is a very accurate autoguider solution suitable for virtually all amateur astrophotography applications.
The function of the Orion autoguider is to help keep Orion telescopes on target while the picture is being taken. It compensates for the rotation of the earth by feeding data to a computer which then sends precise instructions to motor of the telescope mount. Without an autoguider setup, long exposure astrophotography without star trails just isn’t possible.
While there are many great Orion telescopes and accessories available for astrophotography, the main challenge when starting out isn’t with choosing the equipment. The web is full of product reviews and recommendations. Learning how to use the equipment, setting up the camera, processing and stacking images is not really intuitive however. Quality information in this specific area is still lacking. Thankfully, Buy-Telescope.com continues its tradition of providing high quality educational information by giving away a high quality astrophotography eBook called “Getting Started in Astrophotography”. The information supplied in this free eBook really helps amateur backyard astronomers get started on the right track.
