Sky-Watcher AZ GTi WiFi
Thursday, 27 September 2018  | 

I received the Sky-Watcher AZ GTi WiFi shortly after ordering it online excellent service from FLO , attached it to the tripod had it up and running in no time, I used star level north on the free skywatcher app and it got me straight to the ring nebulae, M13 and the dumbbell nebulae no problem. Any deep sky object was in my grasp, I found it lightweight which was what I was looking for. This purchase and the prompt service from FLO really does deserve the 5 star rating Thank you

Small, light weight and feature packed
Tuesday, 13 February 2018  | 

I bought this mount to take abroad for solar imaging as my Merlin mount stripped a gear (now repaired). The AZ GTi is much lighter than my Merlin mount and using it with an iPhone there is no need for a handset controller.

The mount is well made, compact and looks to be stable (I haven't had a scope on it yet). The iPhone app, looks basic, but actually does everything you need very well. The time and position is automatically set by the iPhone and it lists objects which are visible from your location. Most important for a solar imager, it has the sun in it's database.

If you are looking for a feature packed very compact mount for travelling abroad, this ticks all of the boxes.

Little beauty

For a small scope mount I think this is excellent value for a good mount. A big improvement on the old Skywatcher AZ mount. Im a visual astronomer in the main and I find the mount stable (used with the leg extensions retracted and an extra pier extension fitted.
The WiFi app is easy to use and nurses you through setup and alignment.
Goto function is good with the target stars in the middle 1/3 of a 12.5mm EP on my Mac 127.
A very pleasant mount for beginners and more experienced observers , as a quick setup grab and go mount it will be good.
Very pleased. Thanks FLO for your usual excellent service
