When designing the Star Discovery mount, Sky-Watcher engineers kept these words in mind: A simple mount that can really do astronomy, helps beginners to discover the night sky efficiently and that will become a tool that can fulfill their passion.

With motors on both axes the Star Discovery mount can automatically slew a telescope to any subject from the Synscan V4 computerised handset database of over 42,900 night sky objects, including objects from Messier, IC, NGC and Caldwell catalogues, the planets, named stars, double stars, variable stars and even user-defined objects such as new comets.

The exciting new Sky-Watcher Star Discovery mount is an upgraded version of the AZ Go-To mount featuring FreedomFind™ dual encoder technology. This allows the telescope, once aligned, to be moved manually or electronically in either axis without the mount losing its alignment or positional information. After moving to a new object, the mount will continue to track it accurately. This gives the user enormous freedom, convenience and flexibility during observational sessions.
