Sky-Watcher Explorer-130PS with NEW AZ GTi WiFi Mount!

With a useful 130mm aperture and high-quality parabolic primary mirror, the EXPLORER-130PS is a capable all-rounder for observation of the Moon, bright planets, nebulae, galaxies and star clusters. 

The easy-to-use AZ-GTi Wi-Fi mount features a built-in WiFi module, enabling it to be controlled wirelessly via your Smartphone or Tablet using Sky-Watcher's free SynScan App for iOS or Android. 

Together, the mount and app provide fully computerised GoTo. 

It also features Sky-Watcher’s Freedom-Find™ patented dual-encoder technology, so your telescope can be moved manually in either axis without the mount losing its positional information - which is convenient  :-)  

Includes adjustable aluminium tripod with extension pillar and accessory tray. The mount can also be removed and fitted to other suitable photo tripods with standard 3/8" screw fitting. 

NOTE: The 130PS telescope has a non-collimateable primary mirror. Please contact us for more info.
