Product description

The Computerised SynScan™ AZ hand control allows you slew your telescope automatically to 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.

The exciting new Sky-Watcher Star Discovery mount is an upgraded version of the AZ Go-To mount featuring FreedomFind™ dual encoder technology. This allows the telescope, once aligned, to be moved manually or electronically in either axis without the mount losing its alignment or positional information. After moving to a new object, the mount will continue to track it accurately. This gives the user enormous freedom, convenience and flexibility during observational sessions.
