The highly portable Sky-Watcher Skymax-127 Wifi GO-TO Tabletop Maksutov-Cassegrain, has been designed to be controlled wirelessly with your Smartphone or Tablet, using the free SynScan App for iOS or Android. The Virtuoso 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 Virtuoso GTi and SynScan App provide full computerized 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.

The compact but powerful Skymax-127 Maksutov-Cassegrain telescope is ideal for the observation of double-stars, and the surface detail of the Moon & bright planets. Its high-resolution, long focal length optical system is multi-coated to maximize contrast and image sharpness.

Designed for convenient use on a tabletop, but equipped with a 3/8" standard tripod bush so can equally be used with an optional tripod making it a versatile choice. The Sky-Watcher AZ5 Stainless Steel Tripod (code 20316) is highly recommended for use with this telescope.
