SkyWatcher SkyMax 127 AZ-GTI Maksutov Telescope

SkyWatcher SkyMax 127 AZ-GTI Maksutov Telescope

The highly acclaimed Sky-Watcher Skymax-127 optic now with the AZ-GTi goto wifi mount, it has been designed to be controlled wirelessly with your Smartphone or Tablet, using the free SynScan App for iOS or Android. The AZ-GTi mount, with it's built-in WiFi module, creates it’s very own Wi-Fi network, so the mount can be used anywhere, without the need for WiFi or mobile networks. After following a simple alignment procedure, you are ready to explore the universe using the App’s intuitive touchscreen menu.

BBC Sky at Night magazine January 2018
"We took a tour of various targets, taking in Uranus and Neptune, open cluster M45 in Taurus and the Double Cluster in Perseus, the latter just fitting in the view using the 25mm eyepiece. The Dumbbell Nebula in Vulpecula had a nice glow to it, while the Ring Nebula in Lyra lived up to its name when glimpsed through the 10mm eyepiece. On another night we saw the Moon was replete with cratered detail along the terminator using both eyepieces, and each one is certainly capable of revealing fine detail, such as lunar domes and rilles.

This is a fun system to use. Although there is an option to connect a SynScan hand controller, to get the most of this setup its worth downloading the SynScan app for your smartphone."

Freedom find & GoTo
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.

Maksutov Cassegrain optics
The compact but powerful Skymax-127 telescope is ideal for the observation of double-stars, and the surface detail of the Moon & bright planets. Its high-resolution, long focal length optical system is multi-coated to maximise contrast and image sharpness. The 127 Mak has been available for several years building a fine reputation for excellent views, now with the superb AZ-GTI mount for easy goto operation.

Customer Reviews

  Excellent quality 'scope and service  The scope is really well built and easy to set up even by my novice husband and son - my son has even started an Astronomy GCSE as a result! Ed was always willing to help, and sent links for further information. Very happy with the advice, the telescope itself, the service and the after care.  (07/06/2019) Sarah - Manchester

  SkyWatcher SkyMax 127 AZ-GTI  After a few years away from astronomy, I spent some time looking through my options. I decided on this model and am certainly not disappointed. Easy setup, nice app controller and the best bit was 24 hour delivery! Well done Harrison's. I'll definitely be back for my future requirements.   (06/09/2018) Mark Cole - Gosport, Hants


  Great all round telescope   After searching for many months I finally decided the Skywatcher 127 was the one for me, mainly for the wifi feature and Apple App, it's so easy to set up and start viewing, from unboxing the scope and Alignment it took 15mimutes max. HarrisonTelescopes is very knowledgeable and helped me loads. A+   (21/07/2018) Ed - Surrey


  An excellent starter or intermediate Telescope.  10/10 service without question. The Telescope is excellent, the app is easy to use and connects to its own Wi-Fi. Alignment is also very straight forward and last night I followed Saturn for almost 1 hour with very little deviation. Mr Harrison answered all my questions. Thank You.   (22/06/2018) Lee Evans - Hessle


  Brilliant starter telescope   The telescope is a good piece of equipment, the service I received was awesome, very friendly and helpful, even after setting it up I was able to phone for advice, delivery was very good, I ordered it on a Tuesday and received it on Thursday.   (19/03/2018) -


  Just perfect. Ideal starter scope.  I rang Harrison's after looking at their website and various bits, the telephone and delivery service were superb. I rang a couple of times with questions and could not have been happier. The scope is excellent, well made and ideal for a newcomer, easy to set-up and use. All the items are well made.   (09/02/2018) Kev Haworth - Liverpool


  First Scope  The SkyMax 127 AZ-GTI is easy to align and use. This is important to a beginner like me as the weather currently means very patchy and short viewing sessions. Basic eyepieces are supplied so budget for upgrades. A right angled finder scope would be more practical than the red dot provided.   (13/11/2017) Pat - Norfolk
