Sky Watcher AZ-GTi Computerized Altitude-Azimuth Mount

Great mount for a smaller telescope. Very simple to operate, tracks great. I like the phone app and prefer it over my hand controller mounts. I have installed a counter weight to allow smoother operation of telescopes that are near the weight limit of the mount. I use the counter weight in Alt Az mode while most people only use one in EQ mode.

Very happy with mount. Push-to / Goto work fine. Wifi connection simple and reliable. Been able to drive a Celestron 6" SCT with no apparent strain. If you do mount a Celestron, be prepared to load the alternate motor firmware which allows mounting your scope to the right of the mount or your scope will be upside down and focus knob in a weird place on the left. It also allows mount to be run Equatorially with a wedge. Alternate firmware may be listed as Beta, but it works great. If you're using your Android phone as the controller, don't forget to give the Synscan App permission in phone settings to use your location. Also consider one of the two ADM saddle upgrades which use a non-scarring and more secure clamp instead of the single screw on the OEM saddle. Lastly, if you choose to use the 2 pound Skywatcher counterweight with this mount (necessary for Equatorial), realize the counterweight has a M8 thread and the AZ-GTi takes an M12 thread. So order a M8 to M12 adapter (often labeled as an "insert") at the same time.
