About this item

With the Orion Adventures in Astrophotography Bundle, you can begin to take wide-field pictures of the night sky with a DSLR camera (camera sold separately). With just a few key pieces of astronomy equipment, you can capture beautiful wide-field images of starry skies. The Orion Adventures in Astrophotography Bundle lets you take surprisingly detailed pictures of star fields, the Milky Way, or star-trails with a point-and-shoot or DSLR camera (camera not included). All you have to do is attach your camera to the Orion EQ-1 Equatorial mount and tripod with the included 1/4"-20 threaded adapter, then align the EQ mount with Polaris (the North Star) and start shooting. If you leave the camera shutter open for an extended exposure, you'll be rewarded with stunning star-trail images. If you'd rather capture wide-field astrophotos of starry skies and the cloudy Milky Way, you can add electronic tracking to the equation with the included EQ-1M electronic motor drive.

The EQ-1M motor drive will slowly rotate the mount and your attached camera at the same rate the Earth rotates, so the stars in your image will be points of light instead of curvilinear star-trails. This humble collection of gear allows you to capture with your point-and-shoot, SLR, or DSLR camera (camera not included). EQ-1M electronic motor drive is powered by four D-cell batteries (not included).
