The highly portable Sky Watcher Skyhawk-1145PS AZ-GTe has been designed to be controlled wirelessly with your Smartphone or Tablet, using the free SynScan App for iOS or Android. The AZ-GTe mounting, with its built-in Wi-Fi module, creates its very own Wi-Fi network, so the mount can be used anywhere, without any reliance on other Wi-Fi 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 App's intuitive touchscreen menu.
The AZ-GTe and SynScan App provides full computerised GO-TO control, allowing the telescope to be automatically slewed to any one of the objects in the App's extensive database of 10,000 plus celestial objects.
With a useful 114mm of light gathering aperture and a superb parabolic primary mirror, the Skyhawk-1145PS is a highly capable all-rounder for the observation of the Moon, bright planets, nebulae, galaxies and star clusters.
Includes adjustable aluminium tripod with extension pillar and accessory tray, the mount can also be removed and fitted to other suitable photo-tripods with standard 3/8" screw fitting.
