Skywatcher Star Discovery Wifi Goto Alt-Az Mount


Quick Overview

With the Skywatcher Star Discovery Wifi Goto Alt-Az Mount you can use your smartphone or tablet (Android and Apple iOS) to control the mount without a traditional tethered wired connection. Based on the original architecture of the popular Skywatcher Star Discovery AZ Goto Mount, this version comes with a Wifi connection dongle instead of a traditional handset. Simply download the Skywatcher Synscan App, connect your phone or tablet to the mount's wifi hotspot, perform the standard Synscan alignment procedure and you're good to go!

The Skywatcher Star Discovery Wifi Goto Alt-Az Mount incorporates Skywatcher's dual encoder technology, meaning the mount can be moved in either axis without losing goto alignment. With a maximum payload of 5 kgs, this highly portable mount is recommended for those with small to medium-sized telescopes.
