Sky-Watcher AZ-GTiX Dual Saddle Alt-Azimuth Astronomy Mount

The highly portable Sky-Watcher AZ-GTiX Dual Saddle Alt-Azimuth Mount with integrated Wi-Fi will carry up to two telescopes and is controlled wirelessly via your Smartphone or Tablet using the free SynScan App for iOS or Android.

The AZ-GTiX creates its own Wi-Fi network so it can be used anywhere without reliance on other Wi-Fi networks. 

After entering your coordinates into the App and following a simple alignment procedure, you can explore the universe using the App’s intuitive touchscreen menu.

The AZ-GTiX and SynScan App provides full computerised GO-TO control, enabling your telescope to be automatically slewed to any of the objects in the App’s extensive database of 10,000+ celestial objects.

It incorporates Sky-Watcher’s patented 'Freedom-Find' dual-encoder technology so it can be moved manually, in either axis, without the mount losing its positional information. This provides freedom, convenience and flexibility during observational sessions.

The mount is quiet in operation and has a payload capacity of up to 6 kg (using one saddle) or 10 kg (using both saddles).

Accepts telescopes with standard 45mm Dovetail Bars.

Weighs only 2kg, the AZ-GTiX is available as a mount head (for connection to a regular photo tripod via a standard 3/8" tripod bush) or with an optional Sky-Watcher stainless steel tripod with an accessory tray.

It is supplied with an L-Bracket, an additional saddle plate, and a 61mm extension pillar.
