Skywatcher Startravel 102 AZ-GTe Refractor

The highly portable Sky-Watcher STARTRAVEL-102 (AZ-GTe), has been designed to be controlled wirelessly with your Smartphone or Tablet, using the free SynScan App for iOS or Android. The AZ-GTe mounting, with it's built-in WiFi module, creates it’s very own Wi-Fi network, so the mount can be used anywhere, without any reliance on other WiFi or mobile 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-GTe 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.

The STARTRAVEL-102 is a two-element, air-spaced achromatic refractor and a well proven performer for ‘Rich-Field’ views of comets, star fields, star clusters, nebulae, bright galaxies & planets and the Moon .


 

(Please note: The AZ-GTe mount is identical to the AZ-GTi, except Freedom-Find™ dual-axis encoders are not present)
