The exciting new Mak-Newtonian Sky-Watcher Telescope is just what astrophotographers and serious visual observers have been looking for.

The Mak-Newtonian design provides large aperture apochromatic performance with exceptional field correction in a compact, affordable Sky-Watcher Telescope package. Compared to a similarly sized Schmidt-Newtonian, the Sky-Watcher BK MN190 - 190mm Maksutov-Newtonian Telescope w/ EQ6 SynScan GPS yields a sharper and more constrasty image. Naturally, the Mak-Newtonian is an excellent visual performer, too.

The Sky-Watcher BK MN190 - 190mm Maksutov-Newtonian Telescope w/ EQ6 SynScan GPS benefits from the inclusion of Schott glass being used for the positive front Crown element in the Sky-Watcher Telescope objective. Schott is the recognized world leader in glass utilized for precision optical lens systems, including medical instrumentation, and famous-brand camera lenses.

Sky-Watcher SynScan mounts, like the one included in the Sky-Watcher BK MN190 - 190mm Maksutov-Newtonian Telescope w/ EQ6 SynScan GPS, have been designed for use by novices and experts alike. These Sky-Watcher Mounts provide extremely high precision tracking and have built in autoguider ports. Even the most demanding experts will be impressed by the capability of these mounts for astrophotography.

For novice users the user-friendly Sky-Watcher Telescope menu allows automatic slewing to over 13,400 objects. Even an inexperienced astronomer can master the Sky-Watcher BK MN190 - 190mm Maksutov-Newtonian Telescope w/ EQ6 SynScan GPS and its variety of features in a few observing sessions. The SynScan Hand Control also has the ability to connect to a computer via a RS-232 cable. Once the connection has been established between the computer and SynScan Hand Control, many commercially available planetarium software programs can be used to control the EQ6 PRO Sky-Watcher Mounts, They also come with features that advanced astronomers can appreciate.

Don'''t forget, we carry plenty of Sky-Watcher Accessories, too! Look for Sky-Watcher Telescope Eyepieces and Sky-Watcher Telescope Filters for visual observers! Astrophotography buffs will appreciate Sky-Watcher Photo Adapters and the Sky-Watcher SynGuider!
