Perhaps you’re interested in a hobby of astrophotography, but you are overwhelmed by all the different equipment options. Well you’re in luck! Orion has exactly what you’re looking for in our Adventures in Astrophotography Bundle. You don’t need a lot of fancy gear to start taking shots of the night sky. 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, 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 shots of starry skies and the Milky Way, you can add electronic tracking to the equation with the included EQ-1M electronic motor drive. The motor drive will slowly rotate 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.
