I'm so happy with my new telescope! This Skywatcher 150mm telescope (150P-DS) came with a decent motor-controlled mount with go-to capability (EQM-35 Pro). Out of the box, it comes with a Synscan hand controller, which is fine, if somewhat tedious to use. However, when using this mounts go-to capabilities with a WiFi bridge (instead of the hand controller) and the Synscan Pro app this telescope is a pure joy to use.

The WiFi adapter is reasonably priced (relatively, telescope parts are rather pricey), but that's no reason to stop us from building our own version!
