Th­ese tele­scopes have been de­signed to be con­trolled wire­lessly with your Smart­phone or Tablet, us­ing the free SynS­can™ App for iOS or An­droid. The mounts cre­ate their very own Wi-Fi net­work, so the mount can be used any­where, with­out any re­liance on other Wi-Fi net­works. Af­ter en­ter­ing your co­or­di­nates into the App and fol­low­ing a sim­ple align­ment pro­ce­dure, you are ready to ex­plore the uni­verse us­ing the App’s intuitive touch­screen menu. The SynS­can™ App pro­vides full com­put­erised GO-TO con­trol, al­low­ing your tele­scope to be au­to­mat­i­cally slewed to any one of the ob­jects in the App’s ex­ten­sive data­base of 10,000+ ce­les­tial ob­jects. The AZ-GTi and Star Dis­cov­ery mounts in­cor­po­rate Free­dom-Find™ dual-en­coders, al­low­ing them to be moved man­u­ally with­out los­ing their align­ment or po­si­tional in­for­ma­tion. All mod­els also com­pat­i­ble with op­tional Syns­can™ Hand­set and Cable code 20948/20160.
