The highly portable Sky-Watcher STAR DISCOVERY Alt-Azimuth Mount, with the Synscan™ Wi-Fi module, has been designed to be controlled wirelessly with your Smartphone or Tablet, using the free SynScan App for iOS or Android.
The supplied Wi-Fi module creates its very own Wi-Fi network, so the mount can be used anywhere, without any reliance on other WiFi 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 SynScan App provides full computerised GO-TO control to the mount, 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 on 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 5kg and accepts telescopes with standard 45mm Dovetail Bars.
Power Requirement: 12v DC Power Supply (Tip Positive) or 8 x AA Batteries (not supplied). Sky-Watcher 7Ah or 17Ah Power Tank
