Sky-Watcher


Sky-Watcher Skymax-127 Maksutov-Cassegrain Telescope with AZ-GTi WiFi enabled Mount is one of our best selling Telescopes. Maksutov-Cassegrain design makes it compact and powerful. Its high-resolution, long focal length optical system, multi-coated to maximise contrast and image sharpness is ideal for the observation of double-stars, and the surface detail of the Moon & bright planets. 

The highly portable Sky-Watcher SKYMAX-127 (AZ-GTi) comes with AZ-GTi WiFi enabled Mount which has been designed to be controlled wirelessly with your Smartphone or Tablet, using the free SynScan App for iOS or Android. The AZ-GTi 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-GTi 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. 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.          

"I have used a great number of telescopes; some are good, some mediocre and some bad. To me the Sky-Watcher range of instruments are very good indeed, and suited to amateurs of all kinds – and they are not priced out of the market! Excellent value.
Use them and enjoy them."
Sir Patrick Moore CBE FRS (1923 to 2012)

"This is a fun system to use. Although there is an option to connect a SynScan hand controller, to get the most of this setup its worth downloading the SynScan app for your smartphone. The SkyMax-127 feels like the future of telescope control, certainly for anyone that likes technology and is just beginning their exploration of the sky"
