A complete fuly featured Telescope that boasts award winning optics and mount at an affordable price

The exciting new Sky-Watcher SynScan™ Alt-Azimuth GoTo Mount is a precision engineered instrument that will allow you to easily find and enjoy viewing night sky treasures, such as Planets, Nebulae, Star Clusters, Galaxies and much more. The SynScan™ AZ hand control allows you point your telescope at a specific object, or even tour the night sky at the touch of a button!!

Now supplied as standard with x2 Deluxe Barlow Lens with T thread!

"I was most impressed by the views revealed by the ‘scope during tests….Despite a phase of nearly 96 percent, the waxing gibbous Moon revealed a seemingly inexhaustible amount of fine detail"
Astronomy Now Magazine

"The new SynScan AZ incorporates all the key features, upgradeable feature set and ease of use as Sky-Watcher’s more expensive GOTO mounts in a sturdy, single-arm fork package, weighing less than 4.5kg (including tripod) and with an impressive targeting accuracy….Highly recommended"
