The Sky-Watcher 102/1300 Maksutov Cassegrain is a fully automatic telescope ideal for beginners and those who want to get straight to observing. It is a compact and powerful optical design that combines a front meniscus lens and two mirrors. The optical tube is closed by the front meniscus, keeping the mirrors protected from atmospheric agents such as humidity, dust and pollution. The tube is short but the focal length is long, allowing high magnification with standard eyepieces. Magnification achieved with the two supplied eyepieces: 52x(25mm) and 130x(10mm). With maximum practical magnification of 204x , this Sky-Watcher Telescope will reveal details in Saturn’s rings, Jupiter’s bands, the Martian polar ice caps, and the phases of Venus and the moon.

This revolutionary mount is unlike the others. It features a built-in WiFi module, enabling it to to be controlled wirelessly via your Smartphone or Tablet using Sky-Watcher's free SynScan App for iOS or Android.  The AZ-GTi creates it’s own Wi-Fi network so is not reliant on other WiFi networks. The mount and SynScan App together provide full computerised GO-TO. 

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 rather convenient. This also means the mount can be used by hand if you do not wish to use electric supply or when battery power has run out.

The mount is relatively quiet in operation, has a payload capacity of up to 5kg and accepts telescopes via a regular 45mm dovetail bar. 

This package includes:

- 102mm Maksutov-Cassegrain Telescope of focal length 1300mm, f/12.7

- 1.25" eyepieces: 25mm & 10mm

- Red dot finder

- 90-degree star diagonal

- AZ-GTi mount with half-pillar and tripod
