Part Number: SW-10265Brand: SkyWatcher
SkyWatcher have been very busy recently with their Alt-Az telescopes. After releasing their new AZ Pronto and AZ5 Deluxe manual alt-az range of telescopes they come out blazing with an amazing and exciting new series: Enter the SkyWatcher AZ-GTi series - an ideal range for the beginner or for those wanting a quick and easy telescope to set up on a lightweight and highly portable GOTO tracking alt-az mount.
The Skymax 127 Maksutov Cassegrain telescope is not much larger or heavier than its baby brother - the Skymax 102 - but collects ~55% more light and 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.
The telescope sits atop the NEW Sky-Watcher AZ-GTi Alt-Altimuth Mount which has a built-in WiFi module so can be controlled wirelessly with your Smartphone or Tablet, using the free SynScan App for iOS or Android. The AZ-GTi creates it’s very own Wi-Fi network, so the mount can be used anywhere, without any reliance on other WiFi networks. After entering your coordinates into the App and following a simple alignment procedure, you are ready to explore the universe using the App’s intuitive touchscreen menu.
The AZ-GTi and SynScan App provides full computerised GO-TO control, allowing your telescope to be automatically slewed to any one of the objects in the App’s extensive database of 10,000+ celestial objects.
The mount also incorporates Sky-Watcher’s 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 mount is quiet in operation, has a payload capacity of up to 5kg and accepts telescopes with standard 45mm dovetail Bars.
