Freedom Find Function (Dual Encoder Model)

The AZ-GTi mount is equipped with auxiliary encoders on both the azimuth axis and altitude axis. Therefore, the mount can keep track of its current position even when a user unlocks the clutches and rotates the mount in azimuth axis and altitude axis manually.
With this feature, a user can manually operate the mount anytime without worrying about los-ing the mount’s alignment status. When the user wants to operate the mount with the SynScan hand control again, no alignment is required and all that is needed to be done is to re-lock the clutches.

The Maksutov-Cassegrain is a compact and powerful optical design that combines a front meniscus lens and two mirrors. The optical tube is closed by the front meniscus, keeping the mirrors protected from atmospheric agents such as humidity, dust and pollution. The tube is short but the focal length is long allowing high magnification with the standard eyepieces.  With a maximum practical magnification of 256x, this Sky-Watcher Telescope will reveal details in Saturn’s rings, Jupiter’s bands, the Martian polar ice caps, and the phases of Venus and the moon.

The AZ-GTi Mount – WiFi-controllable with iOS and Android and compatible with SynScan hand controller, allowing it for smooth tracking and alignment. Use Wifi to control the telescope wirelessly with your mobile device; smartphone or tablet.
