Mounts and Accessories

Date: 29 Jul 2017

This is just a sample of the items that we can provide. Our Price List has a larger listing, but they also do not represent the full range of products. All our prices include shipment from USA to Singapore.

OEM ACCESSORIES: We're trying out a new range of generic, no-name accessories from OEM manufacturers in China. These un-branded accessories are probably the cheapest things can get, so do check them out in our Price List by searching for the term "OEM"!

For Equatorial mounts, do be aware that if you purchase them directly from the USA, they may not be usable in equatorial latitudes. This is because they are typically design optimised to funciton at latitudes 30 degrees and above. Astro Bargains only sells equatorial mounts that are either suitable for equatorial latitudes, or have been modified to function properly here. See our list of known mounts that are not suitable for equatorial use (without significant mechanical modification).

As telescope and mounts are relatively large items, we will ship them from the USA after they are ordered. It will take about 4-8 weeks for shipment depending on the size of the item. For smaller items, we may have them in stock. Also, as prices change frequently, do refer to our Price List or send us an email to get the latest pricing.

To order, send an email to sales@astrobargains.com with the item you are interested in and your contact information, and we'll get back to you right away !!

If you are interested in any Astro product that is available in the USA, do write to us and we’ll be glad to give you a quote. We will give you the BEST bargain in town !

Payment Terms : "Cash and Carry" or Paypal (in SGD only). Postage and packaging prices quoted on PayPal are for Singapore shipments ONLY. For overseas shipments, please send an email to sales@astrobargains.com.

Orion EZ Finder II Telescope Reflex Sight #07228

The EZ Finder is a simple, but efficient point-where-you-want-to-go device for finding celestial objects. It superimposes a tiny, LED-powered red dot at infinity on the sky. When aligned with your telescope's field of view, the dot shows you exactly where your telescope is pointed. It's easier than a standard finder scope because what you see through the EZ Finder is a nonmagnified, naked-eye view of the sky that is correctly oriented, not upside down. The brightness of the dot, which is centered in a 10° field of view, can be adjusted to suit your preference. Thumbwheels allow positioning of the dot horizontally and vertically for precise alignment with the main telescope.
Runs on a 3-volt lithium battery (included).

Celestron Skylight Filter for SCT's

If you were to use only one filter, Celestron’s Skylight Filter/Dust Seal would be your most versatile choice. This general purpose, Wratten #1A filter improves color saturation and balance, increases visual and photographic contrast, helps to decrease glare in lunar and planetary observing, and penetrates atmospheric haze. It’s also an inexpensive way to protect your investment in quality optics. This filter threads onto the rear cell of your Celestron C5, C8, C9 1/4, C11 or C14 telescope to serve as an effective dust seal. By leaving the Skylight Filter/Dust Seal on when removing or attaching other visual accessories, you prevent dust and other atmospheric contaminants from entering the rear of your telescope. Needless to say, it’s much easier to clean a dusty filter than a dusty primary mirror, secondary mirror and corrector plate.

Astronomik H-Beta Visual Filter - 2" Mounted #HB-2

These filters are awesome, amazingly scratch-resistant, and have a FIVE year warranty. The Astronomik H-ß filter is designed for visual observation of gas nebulas with larger scopes. Due to the extreme small band pass of the H-ß line, the filter will produce a maximum increase of contrast even under best observing conditions. At faint H-II nebulas, like the horsehead nebula, the H-ß filter often makes the difference that decides if the object can be seen or not.

The H-ß filter is to be used from an aperture of more than 8" (20cm) on. At smaller instruments there is not enough light available for a sensible use. Due to the well- known high optical quality of the glass substrate you will still see the needle-sharp stars that you know from your instruments.

The Lumicon Oxygen III Filter produces near-photographic views of the Veil, Ring, Dumbbell and Orion nebula, among many other objects. Performs best under both light-polluted and dark skies. You will be amazed at what the OIII filter allows you to see!

Orion V-Block™ Anti-Fringing Filter

This versatile filter acts like a dimmer switch for your telescope, toning down the brightness of the Moon or planets to a level that is comfortable. The reduction in brightness and glare unmasks detail in your viewing subject and greatly improves contrast.

The filter consists of two high-grade glass polarizing filters in a rotating cell that allows you to adjust the amount of light transmission from 1% to 40%. Such control is highly desirable for lunar observing because the Moon's brightness varies with its phase. The filter is great for terrestrial observing too, especially on sunny days.

The filter has an anodized aluminum cell, which threads into the barrel of any standard eyepiece. Now available in 1.25" and 2" sizes. Storage case included..

Orion SkyGlow Broadband Filter

The SkyGlow is an advanced multilayer "interference" filter designed to enhance deep-sky observing in moderately light-polluted skies. It blocks the most common wavelengths of light pollution - predominantly produced by mercury vapor lamps - and allows higher transmission of critical hydrogen-alpha and hydrogen-beta lines. Bright, light-polluted skies appear much darker in the field of view and contrast significantly enhanced, particularly emission nebulas like the Orion and Lagoon. Views of galaxies and clusters are also improved. Available in 1.25" and 2".

Orion UltraBlock Narrowband Filter

The UltraBlock is the filter for deep-sky observers located at highly light-polluted sites. Blocks all forms of light pollution - mercury vapor and sodium emission bands - while passing the critical hydrogen-beta and ionized oxygen wavelengths. With an UltraBlock, emission and planetary nebulas "surface" from the washed out background sky. In dark skies, the UltraBlock also enhances the sky presence of a significant number of fainter deep-sky objects over unfiltered and wideband-filtered views. Available in 1.25" and 2".

Baader K-Line Filter, stacked, 1¼" (incl. 3.8 Astrosolar photo film)

The New Baader Planetarium Calcium K-Line Filter makes imaging of the sun in K-Line accessible to anyone with a telescope and digital camera or webcam. Baader's innovative double-stacked filter uses sophisticated coatings to produce a sharp 8nm wide bandpass, centered at 395nm. This bandpass provides ample contrast for high-resolution imaging of super granulation, flares, and other features that are prominent in CaK. Unlike small, dedicated, and expensive CaK telescopes, the Baader K-Line filter works with with your existing telescope - at a small fraction of the cost. The Baader CaK may be used with virtually any telescope, of any aperture - Newtonian, SCT, Refractor, etc.
