In addition to the Skywatcher AZ GTi recently revealed, there's another currently being sold in the UK bundled with a small scope: The AZ-EQ AVANT

Very nice price too, though you can bet that will retail here for $1,000.

Looks clever once again from skywatcher ..but hardly worth more than around $700 Oz.

The Avant looks to be cobbled together from Star Adventurer parts minus the tracking. The AZGTi on the other hand is appealing for visual using small OTAs. Iíve read some positive reviews from UK

Only 3kg payload ?

Then the Star Adventurer is more compact, cheaper and can carry 5kg.
