With the help of the free SynScan App for iOS or Android, you can wirelessly control the very portable Sky Watcher Skymax 127 MAK Wi-Fi Astronomy Telescope AZ-GTi Mount (10265). Because the AZ-GTi mounting has its own Wi-Fi network created by the integrated Wi-Fi module, it may be used anywhere without relying on other Wi-Fi or mobile networks. You can use the App's user-friendly touchscreen menu to explore the cosmos after entering your coordinates and going through a quick alignment process.

Full computerised GO-TO control is provided by the AZ-GTi and SynScan App, enabling the telescope to be automatically swung to any of the 10,000+ astronomical objects in the App's enormous database. It incorporates Sky-Watcher's Freedom-Find Dual-Encoder Technology, a patented invention that prevents the mount from losing track of the telescope's location even when it is manually moved in either direction. This offers the user during observing sessions a great deal of freedom, ease, and flexibility.          

The small-but-strong Sky Watcher Skymax 127 MAK telescope is excellent for studying multiple stars as well as the surface details of the Moon and brilliant planetary bodies. To optimise contrast and image sharpness, its high-resolution, long focal length optical system is multi-coated.

The Skymax series, the top line of Maksutov-Cassegrains from Sky-Watcher, offers sharp, contrasty vistas with great levels of detail. Maksutovs are compact telescopes that provide astronomers with a big visual aperture, excellent contrast, and long focal length in a package that is generally regarded as providing clearer images than Schmidt-Cassegrains. These telescopes have focal lengths that are 5-7 times greater than the typical Newtonian or refractor telescope, which allows them to produce higher levels of planetary detail.

Mirrors used in Skymax Maksutovs are made of borosilicate, polished, and coated with our unique Radiant Aluminium Quartz (RAQ) coatings, which result in an astounding 94% reflectivity. To assist eliminate chromatic aberration, all Maksutovs employ a corrector plate. This plate is then coated with our patented Metallic High-Transmission Coatings (MHTC), creating high-quality optics at a reasonable cost.

The 127mm OTA comes with a red dot finder, 1¼ inch diagonal and Super 10 and 25mm eyepieces.

The AZ-GTi also comes with the mount head, pier extension and tripod.
