The largest aperture model in the range, the Sky-Watcher Explorer-130PS (AZ-GTi) is ideal for deep sky views whilst being very portable, it has been designed to be controlled vcia WiFi with your Smartphone or Tablet, using the free SynScan App for iOS or Android.

WiFi GoTo & Freedom find
The AZ-GTi and SynScan App provides full computerised GO-TO control, allowing the telescope to be automatically slewed to any one of the objects in the App’s extensive database of 10,000+ celestial objects. Incorporates Sky-Watcher’s Freedom-Find™ patented Dual-Encoder Technology, which allows the telescope to be moved manually in either axis without the mount losing its positional information. This gives the user enormous freedom, convenience and flexibility during observational sessions.

Customer Reviews

  Great 1st Telescope  I'm a beginner with telescopes and after much research I decided on this model. I liked the simplicity of the Wifi mount along with the App on my phone. So far it has been brilliant and easy to look into the night sky. Easy to set up and view, just stock up on batteries!! Excellent service too.  (20/10/2018) Tania - Essex


  Great telescope with amazing "GoTo" facility  Bought this as my first telescope after a lot of internet research. Have not been disappointed. Great scope that will see me well beyond the "beginner" phase. The wi-fi "Go To" is amazing and a great help for a beginner. Simple and quick to set up. Ordered in the morning and delivered the next day.   (20/07/2018) -
