With the help of the free SynScan App for iOS or Android, the lightweight and incredibly portable Sky Watcher Skymax 102 MAK Wi-Fi Astronomy Telescope with AZ-GTi Mount (10264) can be wirelessly operated with your Smartphone or Tablet. 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.  Incorporates Sky Watcher's Freedom-Find Dual-Encoder Technology, a patented invention that enables manual movement of the telescope in either axis without the mount losing its location data. This offers the user during observing sessions a great deal of freedom, ease, and flexibility.          

The small-but-strong Skymax 102 MAK Wi-Fi telescope is excellent for studying double 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.

Ideal in Any Situation
The Sky Watcher Skymax 102 MAK Wi-Fi Astronomy Telescope with AZ-GTi Mount (10264) is the ideal tracking system for anyone looking for a portable travel mount that can perform both video time-lapse and Alt-Az GoTo alignment. This versatile AZ mount, with a payload capacity of 11 pounds, can hold anything from a small Maksutov or refractor to a medium-sized DSLR for time-lapse photography. The AZ-GTi is the ultimate travel mount because it weighs only 3.9Kg, fits easily in carry-on luggage, and is suitable for grab-and-go scenarios.

Innovative Wi-Fi Control
One of the first Sky-Watcher products with integrated Wi-Fi control is the AZ-GTi. Use the Sky-Watcher SynScan Pro app to connect to the mount and then align it for celestial monitoring.

Simple incorporation into any tripod
An adjustable aluminium tripod with a built-in pier extension is included with the AZ-GTi. The mount can be mounted to almost any tripod thanks to its ability to use a 3.8-inch-16 thread and the inclusion of an adaptor for 1/4-inch-20 thread sizes.

Control for Automatic Shutter Release
With the AZ-GTi, an intervelometer timer is not required! The AZ-GTi may use the auxiliary shutter release connection to trigger a DSLR with a preset exposure time of 60 seconds. The camera will keep taking 60-second exposures after being plugged into the mount and firing a shot until the cable is unplugged.

Accessories Included
Red dot finder, 1 1/4-inch diagonal, Super 10 and 25mm eyepieces are included with the 102mm OTA.

The mount head, pier extension, and tripod are included with the AZ-GTi.
