    Sky-Watcher Wave 150i Strain Wave Mount

    NEW Sky-Watcher Harmonic Drive mount – expected to become available July/August 2024

    • The Sky-Watcher 150i is modelled upon strain wave design, commonly referred to as a harmonic drive. More on these types of mounts here.
    • Wave 150i weighs only 5.8kg, yet can withstand a native payload capacity of 15kg and 25kg, with and without a counterweight respectively.
    • Transmission ratio of 300:1.
    • The maximum slew rate of 2400x (10° per second).
    • The Sky-Watcher Wave 150i has a working latitude range of 0° to 90°.
    • Sidereal, lunar, and solar tracking supported.
    • DC 12V power requirement.
    • Comes with a single Vixen and Losmandy saddle.
    • Compatible with dual AZ/EQ mode.
    • 5 Year Sky-Watcher Limited Warranty

    Benefits of Strainwave Designs
    The Sky-Watcher 150i  mount uses astrain 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.

    15kg Payload Capacity
    The Sky-Watcher Wave 150i weighs only 5.8kg, yet it can handle a payload of 15kg without counterweights and up to 25kg with a counterweight.

    Transmission Ratio of 300:1 Ensures Smooth Slewing and Tracking
    The Wave 150i has a transmission ratio of 300:1, which represents a relatively 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 150i is 2400x (10° per second).

    Works at any Latitude
    The Sky-Watcher Wave 150i 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 150i 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
    • One, Two and Three Stars or Brightest Star Alignment
    • 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.
