Sky-Watcher


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 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 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 in 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.

Android 11 notice from Sky-Watcher:

We have confirmed that the current version of SynScan App, SynScan Pro App and SAM Console App on the Google Play are not compatible with Android 11. We have finished the development of new version of these apps which can work with Android 11, but due to technical issues, we cannot release the updates on Google Play. Unfortunately, this situation might last several months.

Currently, only Google’s Pixel smart phone can run Android 11, other brands might start to provide Android 11 devices in one or two months. If you are planning to use Android 11 devices to run Sky-Watcher apps, please do the following:

1.       Uninstall the SynScan app, SynScan Pro app or SAM Console app which are downloaded from Google Play.

2.       Visit our website to download and install the latest version of the apps.

3.       Grant the app with the permission to access the smart phone’s location. Users have to do it manually.
