The highly portable Sky-Watcher SKYMAX-127 (AZ-GTi) has been designed to be controlled wirelessly with your smartphone or tablet, using the free SynScan App for iOS or Android.
The AZ-GTi mounting, with it´s built-in WiFi module, creates its very own Wi-Fi network, so the mount can be used anywhere, without any reliance on other WiFi or mobile networks. After entering your coordinates into the App and following a simple alignment procedure, you are ready to explore the universe using the Apps intuitive touchscreen menu.
The AZ-GTi and SynScan App provides full computerised GO-TO control, allowing the telescope to be automatically slewed to any one of the objects in the Apps extensive database of 10,000+ celestial objects.
Incorporates Sky-Watchers Freedom-Find patented Dual-Encoder Technology, which allows the telescope to be moved manually in either axis without the mount losing its positional information. This gives the user enormous freedom, convenience and flexibility during observational sessions.
The compact but powerful SKYMAX-127 telescope is ideal for the observation of double stars, and the surface detail of the moon & bright planets. Its high-resolution, long focal length optical system is multi-coated to maximise contrast and image sharpness.
