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.

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.
