Wirelessly operate the very portable Sky Watcher Heritage 150P FlexTube Tabletop Dobsonian Wi-Fi Astronomy Telescope with Virtuoso GTi Mount 10997 on your smartphone or tablet with the help of the free SynScan App for iOS or Android.

The Virtuoso GTi mounting may be used anywhere without relying on other Wi-Fi or mobile networks thanks to its integrated Wi-Fi module, which establishes its 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 Virtuoso GTi 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. 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 Heritage 150P telescope, which shares the same outstanding Parabolic Primary Mirror as Sky Watchers' highly regarded Explorer-150P, is a terrific and versatile all-rounder that will offer wonderful views of the Moon, planets, and deep-sky objects. It is now even easier to transport and store thanks to the incorporation of the patent-pending collapsible FlexTube system.      

It is intended for easy tabletop use, but since it has a 3/8" standard tripod bush, it may also be used with an additional tripod, giving it a flexible alternative. For usage with this telescope, the Sky-Watcher AZ5 Stainless Steel Tripod (20316) is strongly recommended.

Sky-Watcher Deluxe Mirror Coatings: Today's reflectors often feature an aluminium coating on the mirror surface, followed by a protective layer of silicon monoxide or silicon dioxide. Compared to silicon monoxide, silicon dioxide creates a far more durable coat but costs more to apply since it needs specialised equipment. Because the mirror in the majority of reflectors is exposed to the elements and deterioration of the reflecting coating lowers the telescope's resolution, protection is necessary. For maximum durability and long-term performance, Silicon Dioxide Multi-Coating is a standard feature on ALL Sky-Watcher reflectors.
