After entering your coordinates into the App and following a simple alignment procedure, you are ready to explore the universe using the Appís intuitive touchscreen menu.

I have been using this mount for a few weeks now, with and without the skywatcher equatorial wedge, and it is very easy to use and seems to track well, once correctly levelled. No issues using it with the SYNSCAN app on either tablet or PC.Slight issue is that the circular bubble level at the top of MY mount does not correspond to the base level of the mount. This is not a problem as long as you are aware of it and set up the mount using the tripod circular level, at the top of the extension (which did exactly match my spirit levels at quadrant points).Checking the mount with scope attached with a spirit level to ensure that it is level 360 degrees in rotation (required for good tracking- the mount software will expect that mount is correctly levelled). Other than that minor issue it seems to be a really useful lightweight GOTO, and I look forward to using it a great deal. So far 4 stars out of 5
