Wirelessly manage the lightweight and incredibly portable Sky Watcher Skymax 102 MAK Wi-Fi Astronomy Telescope with AZ-GO2 Mount 10194, with the help of the free SynScan App for iOS or Android.
Maksutov-Cassegrain optical design
Coatings made of proprietary Radiant Aluminium Quartz (RAQ) are found on the primary and secondary mirrors.
Metallic High-Transmission Coatings (MHTC) on a corrector plate completely eliminate chromatic aberrations.
1300mm focal length, 102mm aperture, and f/12.7 focal ratio
Glossy, black diamond metal-flake polish on an aluminium tube
Comes with AZ-Go2 mount
SynScan App provides full computerised GO-TO control
The AZ-Go2 mounting may be used anywhere without relying on other Wi-Fi or mobile networks because to its built-in 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 AZ-Go2 and SynScan App, enabling the telescope to be automatically swung to any of the 10,000+ astronomical objects in the App's enormous database. The SKYMAX-102 telescope's small size and strength make it the perfect tool for studying multiple stars as well as the surface details of the Moon and brilliant planets. To enhance 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.
