Perfect for any Situation

Sky-Watcher’s AZ-GTi is the perfect tracking platform for those seeking a compact travel mount capable of both Alt-Az Go-To alignment and video timelapse. Boasting a payload capacity of 11lbs, this modular AZ mount can support anything from a small Maksutov or refractor, to a mid-sized DSLR for timelapse photography. Weighing just 8.6 lbs, the AZ-GTi is the ideal travel mount, easily fitting in carry-on luggage and perfect for grab-and-go situations.

Revolutionary WiFi Control

The AZ-GTi is one of the first Sky-Watcher products featuring built in WiFi control. Once connected to the mount, use Sky-Watcher’s SynScan Pro app to align the mount for celestial tracking or the SynScan PTZ app for timelapse photography.

Easy Integration with any Tripod

The AZ-GTi includes an adjustable aluminium tripod with built in pier extension. The mount can attach to a tripod using a 3.8”-16 thread and includes an adapter for ¼”-20 thread sizes, making it capable of mounting to nearly any tripod.

Automatic Shutter Release Control

No need for an intervelometer timer with the AZ-GTi! With a 60-second preset exposure setting, the AZ-GTi can trigger a DSLR using the auxiliary shutter release cable. Once the camera is plugged into the mount and a shot is fired, it will continually shoot 60 second exposures until the cable is removed.

The 127mm OTA comes with a red dot finder, 1¼ inch diagonal and Super 10 and 25mm eyepieces.

The AZ-GTi come with the mount head, pier extension and tripod.
