Skywatcher Virtuoso GTi 150P TableTop Dobsonian
The Sky-Watcher Virtuoso GTi 150 mm f/5 collapsible tabletop Dobsonian is the ultimate combination of convenience, flexibility, and light-gathering power, and it now comes with Wi-Fi! Ideally suited for both the beginner astronomy enthusiast looking for a first telescope and as a casual backyard/travel alternative for the experienced observer, this portable telescope boasts big views and is the perfect camping companion for your dark sky getaways.
The Sky-Watcher 150P Virtuoso GTi has undergone a major transformation from the original Sky-Watcher Virtuoso in all the ways that matter: Larger aperture, faster focal ratio, a collapsible optical tube assembly, and built-in Wi-Fi for full GoTo telescope control via a smartphone with the free Sky-Watcher SynScan app for iOS and Android. While the original Virtuoso from Sky-Watcher was more focused on planetary, solar, and lunar viewing with its long focal length and included solar filter, this Virtuoso GTi telescope borrows its collapsible optical tube design from the popular line of Flextube and Heritage Sky-Watcher Dobsonians for a versatile package that does it all.
The Virtuoso GTi 150P features Sky-Watcher’s Radiant™ Aluminum Quartz (RAQ™) coatings on all optical surfaces for bright, bold views, and comes complete with everything you need to start exploring the night sky mere minutes out of the box including a red dot finder and two eyepieces (25mm and 10mm). With the free SynScan Pro app – available for iOS and Android -- the user has access to a database that contains over 10,000 objects, including Messier, NGC, IC, and Caldwell catalogs. Align on the stars using one of four alignment methods to put Virtuoso GTi's internal computer to work and track objects like the Sun, Moon, and stars at precise rates. Also included is Sky-Watcher's patented Freedom Find™ technology uses dual encoders to allow manual control while retaining alignment and position information, providing exceptional convenience and flexibility while viewing.
