SkyWatcher SkyMax 102 AZ-GTI Maksutov Telescope

SkyWatcher SkyMax 102 AZ-GTI Maksutov Telescope

The lightweight and highly portable Sky-Watcher Skymax-102 (AZ-GTi) Maksutov cassegrain, has been designed to be controlled wirelessly with your Smartphone or Tablet, using the free SynScan App for iOS or Android. The AZ-GTi mounting, with it's built-in WiFi module, creates it’s very own Wi-Fi network, so the mount can be used anywhere, without WiFi or mobile networks. After following a simple alignment procedure, you are ready to explore the universe using the App’s intuitive touchscreen menu. Complete with eyepieces, finder and diagonal.

GoTo with 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.

Compact & Powerful Mak optics
The compact but powerful Skymax-102 telescope is ideal for the observation of double-stars, and the surface detail of the Moon & bright planets. Its high-resolution, longer focal length optical system is multi-coated to maximise contrast and image sharpness and allows higher powers with standard eyepieces. A versatile quality package combining easy to use advanced wireless technology and compact optics.

  SKY WATCHER SkyMax 102 AZ-GTI Maksutov Telescope  This is my first foray into sky watching. I made a few 'phone calls & trawled around on the web. The most informed advice came from Harrison Telescopes & I made the purchase. The 'scope was well boxed & easy to set up. Info on the 'scope itself was not included & I got that off the web.
