This is a fun system to use. Although there is an option to connect a SynScan hand controller, to get the most of this setup its worth downloading the SynScan app for your smartphone. The SkyMax-127 feels like the future of telescope control, certainly for anyone that likes technology and is just beginning their exploration of the sky.

Compact with big impact

I bought this scope as a grab-and-go for camping trips, but I can see it will become my main scope at home too just because of how easy it is to use. From unpacking the box I was set up and ready to go in about half an hour. I'm not the most technical savvy of people, but I've found this wifi mount and SynScan app on iPhone incredibly easy, and because of that I think I will be out observing more than ever.

First night using this telescope and I was very pleasantly surprised at the quality of the kit, and clarity of targets, Jupiter was clearer than I've ever seen it before, even through a 250 dob.

Really impressed with this telescope, and the great service from FLO.

Great portable telescope

The SkyMax 127 Mak and AZ GTi is a great grab and go telescope and as such will get a lot of use. Excellent optics and well-engineered goto mount that can easily be carried outside, or put in the back of a car.
