The new BKP300 Dual Speed Sky-Watcher Telescope incorporates a superb mirror-set with two significant advantages. A Dual-Speed 10:1 ratio focuser is now included for excellent focusing precision. Also the tube length of the Sky-Watcher Black Diamond BK P300 DS - 300mm Reflector Telescope w/ EQ6 Synscan GPS has been slightly shortened to optimize performance for prime-focus photography.

 

Even better performance for astrophotography and visual use can be achieved when this Sky-Watcher Telescope used in combination with Sky-Watcher''s Newtonian coma corrector.

 

SynScan Sky-Watcher Mounts have been designed for use by novices and experts alike. These Sky-Watcher Mounts, like the SkyWatcher Black Diamond BK P300 DS - 300mm Reflector Telescope w/ EQ6 Synscan GPS provide extremely high precision tracking and have built in autoguider ports. Even the most demanding experts will be impressed by the capability of these Sky-Watcher Mounts for astrophotography.
