The Merlin TableTop GOTO mount is another exciting new development from Sky-Watcher.

It is quick and convenient to set-up on a patio or picnic table and ideal for travelling with, due its compact size.

Compact telescope OTA's up to approximately 4kg can be attached via the standard Sky-Watcher/Vixen dovetail bar fitting. Also spotting scopes can be attached via their tripod adaptor bush and mounted on the supplied L-Bracket.

The SynScan AZ hand control allows you point your telescope at a specific object, or even tour the night sky at the touch of a button!! The user-friendly menu system allows automatic slewing to over 42,900+ night sky objects. Even an inexperienced astronomer can master its variety of features in a few observing sessions. Please note the simple Auto-tracking handset with the "Cruise Control" feature, as described in the YouTube video below is not supplied as standard with this mounting.

"If you're looking for a compact tabletop Go-To mount suitable for a small refractor or Maksutov-Cassegrain telescope weighing less than about 4kg, Sky-Watcher's SynScan hand controller offers the same 42,000+ object database and rich feature set of its larger siblings. Capable of running off internal AA batteries or external 12V power increases its versatility. "
