Rock Solid GoTo Tracking Built for Globe Trekking

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

Revolutionary Wi-Fi Control

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

Easy Integration with any Tripod

The AZ-GTi includes an adjustable aluminum tripod with built in pier extension. The mount can attach to a tripod using a 3.8-inch-16 thread and includes an adapter for ¼-inch-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.

Freedom Find™

For those looking for the ultimate visual tracking mount, the AZ-GTi features Sky-Watcher's Freedom Find™ dual-encoder system. These encoders are separate from the mount's GoTo system and allow you to disengage the clutches and manually move the mount around the sky without losing your initial alignment.

Available in three configurations

Whether it's the mount only, with a 102mm Maksutov OTA, or with a 127mm Maksutov OTA, the AZ-GTi delivers the perfect grab-and-go system for the astronomer that’s on the move.

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