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).

Autoguider Receives Accolades From S&T
Autoguider Receives Accolades From S&T
Our new StarShoot AutoGuider is quickly proving that accurate guiding for deep-sky imaging can be achieved without breaking the bank. Recently, this product received a four-star rating from Sky & Telescope. Here are a few excerpts from the review?

 

"Orion's StarShoot AutoGuider worked great. It was simple to set up and start guiding accurately. The resulting photos showed well-tracked, pinpoint stars."

"A nice feature of the StarShoot is its simple cable connections. There's an RJ-12 jack on the camera, allowing it to connect directly to the mount with a single, simple cable. The other camera connection is for a USB cable that runs to a laptop?just two cables are needed to run the auto-guiding system."

"With my 66-mm guidescope, the StarShoot proved sensitive enough to always find a suitable guidestar even in the star-poor fields surrounding some popular galaxies."

"Orion has provided a fine autoguiding package that breaks new ground for affordability and ease of use?Given the StarShoot AutoGuider's low cost and high level of performance, virtually every deep-sky astrophotographer can now enjoy the benefits of autoguiding."

Why put up with tedious "manual" guiding of long exposures? Get the affordable computerized guiding solution for deep-sky astrophotography.
