About the Sky-Watcher BK 10" Dobsonian Synscan Telescope...

The exciting new Sky-Watcher Telescope Dobsonian SynScan series is precision engineered instrument that will allow you to easily find and enjoy viewing night sky treasures, such as Planets, Nebulae, Star Clusters, Galaxies and much more. With its patented collapsible tube design, these Sky-Watcher Telescope Dobsonians are truly the ultimate in portability and performance.

 

The elegant truss tube design was carefully engineered to combine ease of use, extreme portability and consistent performance in an affordable package. Unlike other truss tube designs, the Sky-Watcher BK 10" Dobsonian Synscan Telescope does not need to be disassembled between uses. It transports as two compact pieces that can be assembled and ready to use in just seconds! This Sky-Watcher Telescope is easy to collimate once set up, and it holds its collimation throughout the evening! The patented Tension Control Handle allows users to add or reduce tension, thereby increasing or decreasing the friction between the optical tube and the sideboards.

 

The SynScan AZ hand control allows you point your Sky-Watcher Telescope at a specific object, or even tour the night sky at the touch of a button!! The user-friendly menu system on-board the Sky-Watcher BK 10" Dobsonian Synscan Telescope allows automatic slewing to over 42,900+ objects. Even an inexperienced astronomer can master its variety of features in a few observing sessions. The patented dual encoder design allows the Sky-Watcher Telescope to be moved manually whenever the user wishes - but with no need for re-alignment!

 

The Sky-Watcher BK 10" Dobsonian Synscan Telescope combines the convenience and affordability of the traditional Dobsonian with the convenience of a computerized Go-To Sky-Watcher Telescope.

 

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!
