Skywatcher AZ GtiX Dual Saddle Goto Wifi Mount inc Tripod
The AZ-GTiX creates it’s very own Wi-Fi network, so the mount can be used anywhere, without any reliance on other Wi-Fi networks. After entering your coordinates into the App and following a simple alignment procedure, you are ready to explore the universe using the App’s intuitive touchscreen menu.
The AZ-GTiX and SynScan App provides full computerised GO-TO control, allowing your 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.
The mount is quiet in operation, has a payload capacity of up to 6kg (using one saddle) or 10kg (using both saddles) and accepts telescopes with standard 45mm Dovetail Bars.
Supplied with Stainless Steel Tripod, L-Bracket with additional saddle plate and a 61mm extension pillar.
