    Benefits of Strainwave Designs
    The Sky-Watcher 100i is  a strain wave design, commonly referred to as a harmonic drive. These types of mount mechanics come packed with a number of advantages for astrophotography, including very accurate precision tracking which is ideal for longer exposure imaging, zero backlash and smoother motion for stable tracking, compact designs for easier transport and a relatively high payload to weight ratio to accommodate a much wider range of equipment.

    10kg Payload Capacity
    The Sky-Watcher Wave 100i weighs only 4.3kg, yet it can handle a payload capacity of 10kg without counterweights and up to 15kg with a counterweight.


    There’s a number of tripod options for the Sky-Watcher Wave 100i mount. We highly recommend the Benro Fibre Mach3 Tripod – this $549 tripod is lightweight and very stable.

    Transmission R>Tatio of 300:1 Ensures Smooth Slewing and Tracking
    The Wave 100i has a transmission ratio of 300:1, resulting in a high level of tracking and slewing accuracy since motor torque and rotation is divided into smaller increments, lessening any impact of jolts between rotations that could be apparent the longer exposures become. The maximum slew rate of the 100i is 2400x (10° per second).

    Works at any Latitude
    The Sky-Watcher Wave 100i has a working latitude range of 0° to 90°, meaning it can be operated successfully at any latitude and doesn’t suffer from limitations on more traditional gear mounts with counterweight obstruction and zenith out of range.

    Supports Multiple Tracking
    The Wave 100i supports sidereal, lunar and solar tracking. This means it can be reliably used for night-time astrophotography, moon capture and stunning solar imaging!

    SynScan Features:

    • Database with 42,900+ objects
    • Messier, Caldwell, NGC, IC & SAO catalogues, Named Stars, Double Stars, Variable Stars, Named Stars

    • Autoguiding feature for astrophotography
    • Pointing Accuracy Enhancement feature (PAE)
    • Permanent Periodic Error Correction (PPEC)
    • Unknown Object Identification feature
    • Pointing accuracy up to 10 arc min
    • Tracking rates: Sidereal, Lunar, Solar
    • Slewing speeds: 1x, 2x, 16x, 32x, 64x, 128x, 400x, 500x, 600x, 800x (3.4°/sec)

    The exceptional SynScan Go-To system allows full control of both R.A. and Dec. axes with 9 slew speeds and 5 arcminute pointing precision, allowing you to quickly and accurately locate objects across the night sky. The Go-To system can automatically slew the telescope on command toward planets, stars, nebulae, galaxies, clusters and much more. The SynScan has 42,900 memorised celestial objects for an amazing journey in the night sky. The Deep Sky Tour function suggests a list of the most interesting deep sky objects currently visible, so even the novice astronomer can easily observe faint objects at the touch of a button.
