The AZ-GTe mounting, with it's built-in WiFi module, creates it’s very own Wi-Fi network, so the mount can be used anywhere, without any reliance on other WiFi or mobile 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 men.

The AZ-GTe and SynScan App provides full computerised GO-TO control, allowing the telescope to be automatically slewed to any one of the objects in the App’s extensive database of 10,000+ celestial objects.

The MERCURY-707 is a proven two-element, air-spaced achromatic refractor with a 70mm multi-coated objective lens, and will provide rewarding views of the Moon, stars, bright planets and other night sky objects.
