Planetary Observing & Imaging

Our recommended telescopes for enjoying the Summer Parade of Planets!

Larger aperture telescopes will be capable of delivering more detailed views of all of the planets and deep sky objects. Computerized GoTo mounts make it easy to keep those planets and other small objects in the eyepiece for extended viewing. EQ Mounts are the choice for imaging, both for planetary and DSO, although any telescope can be used to image the plants with one of our Planetary Cameras.
