BK MN190 EQ6 SynScan
Product Features

The Mak-Newtonian equipped with EQ6 SynScan is a great option for pro astrophotographers and serious visual observers. 

The Mak-Newtonian design provides large aperture apochromatic performance with exceptional field correction in a compact, affordable package. Compared to a similarly sized Schmidt-Newtonian, the Mak-Newtonian yields a sharper and more contrasty image. Naturally, the Mak-Newtonian is an excellent visual performer, too.
