The exciting new lightweight and highly portable Sky-Watcher AZ-GTi Alt-Azimuth Mount, with it's built-in WiFi module, has been designed to be controlled wirelessly with your Smartphone or Tablet, using the free SynScan App for iOS or Android.
The AZ-GTi creates it's 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 AZ-GTi 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.

Dit had ik eerder moeten kopen! I.p.v. mijn zware parallactische statief gebruik ik nu deze voor mijn 80 mm apo kijker. Ik zet telescoop horizontaal, draai statief naar noorden. Doe app aan op mobiel met scherm op laagste helderheid en verbindt met statief via WiFi. Ik selecteer twee heldere sterren die zichtbaar zijn en de telescoop gaat naar de eerste ster. Bijsturen via de app naar midden, ga naar tweede ster en corrigeer indien nodig. Hierna is the sky the limit. Ik heb wel moeite met omgekeerd zoeken in de kijker en het vinden van zwakke objecten in het verleden: dat is wel opgelost. Je selecteert uit lijst op basis van magnitude en zichtbaarheid diverse deepsky objecten waar de telescoop naar toe gaat. Snelheid is hoog en instelbaar. WoW! Ook voor vakantie een super oplossing als je telescoop niet te zwaar is. Overigens ben ik ook beetje aan het oefenen met fotografie met spiegelreflex achter mijn Apo: korte sluitertijden van 30 sec en lager kan hij prima volgen bij korte brandpuntsafstand. Had ik al gezegd dat ik deze eerder had moeten kopen?
