Using the free SynScan App for iOS or Android, you can remotely manage the Sky Watcher Star Discovery P150i Newtonian Reflector Astronomy Telescope (10275) from your smartphone or tablet. The mount may be used anywhere without relying on other WiFi or mobile networks thanks to the included Synscan Wi-Fi module, which establishes it's own Wi-Fi network. 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 Star Discovery P150i and SynScan App, enabling the telescope to be automatically swung to any one of the 10,000+ astronomical objects in the App's enormous database which, 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 Sky Watcher Star Discovery P150i Reflector Telescope is a highly capable all-arounder for the observation of the Moon, brilliant planets, nebulae, galaxies, and star clusters and is portable. It has a very helpful 150mm of light gathering aperture and a great parabolic primary mirror.
