"In recent years the Sky-Watcher brand has won several plaudits for its well engineered and easy-to-use range of GOTO mounts….Acknowledging the need for a lightweight alt-azimuth GOTO mount to complement the existing range, Sky-Watcher has just introduced six optical tube assemblies on the new SynScan AZ….the mount itself will inevitably invite comparisons with that of Celestron’s SLT range, but apart from an identical tripod and similar castings for the single-arm fork, they are very different mounts. Unlike the tube-specific plastic moulding surrounding the dovetail-mounting block on the SLT, the SynScan AZ has an all-alloy fixture that presents no such restriction, and just about any OTA less than 5kg with a Vixen-style dovetail bar may be used with it….Even without being particularly careful about initial set-up , the mount repeatedly performed well in all GOTO tests. The Moon - a fast moving object subject to a large parallax and always a good test – was consistently positioned in the central part of the field of view, as were the planets. The SynScan AZ swiftly and reliably found every requested random object over the entire visible hemisphere, with a pointing error never exceeding 0.3 degrees….Quieter in operation than the competing Celestron SLT mount and equally capable of external computer control…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"

This telescope with its superb Parabolic optics provides excellent all-round performance for both the observation of the Moon & Planets and Deep-Sky objects.



Fantastic performance from this highly capable all-rounder. Its precision Parabolic primary mirror captures 30% more precious starlight than a 114mm reflector for bright, sharp, contrasty views of a wide range of night sky objects.





"Its sharp optics and relatively small central obstruction ensure s that it delivers bright, diffraction-limited images….can view a true field in excess of 2°….will give you memorable views of the Moon and bright planets…In short, it’s a great all-rounder in its class"
Ade Ashford,



"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"
