Please Note

Orion has made the difficult decision to close our warehouse facility in the Netherlands. With the continuing supply chain/logistics challenges and slowness in the economy we have found that it is not economically feasible to maintain operations in the UK and Europe.

We have therefore stopped taking orders on this website. We apologize for any inconvenience.

We will continue to have Orion dealers in Europe to meet the needs of Orion consumers. We will also continue to honor the 30-Day product return period as well as honoring the Orion warranty for purchases made in the UK and Europe.

Our US-based Customer Service Representatives are here to help. Contact them via email at support@telescope.com or in the United Kingdom, via phone at 0-800-041-8146 (Monday-Friday between the hours of 1300 and 2400 GMT).

Details
Date Taken: 08/28/2014
Photographer: Doug H.
Location: Temecula, CA
Telescope: Orion ED80T CF 80mm triplet apochromatic refractor
Mount: Orion Atlas EQ-G
Camera: Parsec 8300M Monochrome Astronomical Imaging Camera
Exposure: 8 - Ha (30 Minute Frames) 1st night, 11-OIII (30 Minute Frames) 2nd Night
Other Equipment Used: Orion Nautilus 2" Filter Wheel, Orion 2" Ha Filter, Orion 2" OIII Filter, Orion Accu-Focus (Mod), Orion Rockstable Mount Pads,Orion Starshoot autoguider, Orion 80MM F/11.4 Guide Scope, Orion Ultrascopic 5mm Illuminated Eyepiece (Used for alignment), Orion Dew Zapper System, Televue TRF-2008
Notes: Combined image of two types of processing. The Red Crescent Nebula was developed by creating a synthetic green and the Ha nebula was created using a Selective Color technique. Combining both images into one I felt looked the best. The OIII stack wasn't tracking very well, the second night I selected a different guide star and it resulted in football stars.
