Ideal for small- to medium-aperture refractors and catadioptrics, the Sky-Watcher AZ-GTi GoTo AZ Mount features an integrated WiFi module that generates its own local network signal to allow wireless control via a smartphone running their free SynScan Pro app for Android and iOS devices. The app is intuitively laid out for easy setup, navigation, and exploration of the sky—even if you've never looked through a telescope before. Packed with over 42,900 objects with daytime and nighttime alignment-assistance procedures, plus advanced features such as periodic error correction (PEC), backlash compensation, tours, and DSLR camera control, the SynScan app is a powerful yet easy-to-use way to control the mount.

Dual-axis motors slew to and track objects, while dual encoders on each axis precisely follow the mount's movement and maintain its alignment—even if the mount is moved by hand. A Vixen-style dovetail saddle makes mounting a variety of optical tube assemblies (OTAs) fast and easy, and with a payload capacity of up to 11 pounds it is ideal for refractors and Maksutov-Cassegrain telescopes. Supporting the mount is an adjustable-height aluminum tripod. The AZ-GTi comes with a pier extension that is located between the tripod and mount head to provide additional height for easier viewing without sacrificing stability when the OTA is aimed at or near the zenith.

Mount
  • Motorized alt-azimuth design
  • Integrated WiFi module allows for direct connection to smartphones without the need for routers or Internet connection
  • DC servo motors precisely move the mount on both axes with minimum vibration
  • Dual encoders on each axis maintain alignment, even when mount is moved by hand, letting you move the mount manually across the sky while keeping GoTo functionality
  • Altitude and azimuth clutch knobs enable easy manual movement
  • SNAP port allows optional remote shutter-release cables to be connected to mount for advanced astrophotography
  • Runs on eight user-supplied AA batteries or optional 12 VDC power cord
SynScan App
  • Free app for Android and iOS devices
  • Align, move, and control mount wirelessly
  • Automatic day, date, time, and location using the device's GPS unit
  • 42,900+ object database, similar to the conventional SynScan hand controller
  • Sky tour shows best deep-sky objects visible at a specific day/date/time
  • Solar, lunar, sidereal tracking rates
  • Slew speeds: 0.5x, 1x, 8x, 16x, 32x, 64x, 128x, 400x, 600x, Max (800x/3.4°/sec)
  • Assisted nighttime and daytime alignment procedures
  • Periodic error correction (PEC) allows user to train out intrinsic tracking errors and save them into the permanent memory to improve GoTo and tracking accuracy over time
  • Backlash compensation eliminates the backlash experienced when gears stop and settle for improved GoTo and slewing accuracy
  • DSLR shutter release and exposure control enable long-exposure, time-lapse, and other advanced astrophotography techniques to be controlled by the app through the SNAP port on mount
