Sky-Watcher’s Astrophotography Reflectors are the next step up in quality from the regular reflectors. The new Sky-Watcher BKP 150 Dual Speed incorporates 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 has been slightly shortened to optimize performance for prime-focus photography.
The EQ3 Pro mounts use the same Go-To system found in the HEQ5 and EQ6 Pros– SynScan. It allows you to point the telescope at a specific object or even tour the skies at the touch of a button. The EQ3 Pro mounts are the perfect instrument for novice visual observers to enjoy astronomy with minimal setup time and in-depth knowledge of the night sky.
