Benefits of Strainwave Designs

The Sky-Watcher 150i is modeled upon strain wave design, commonly referred to as harmonic. These type of mount mechanics come packed with a number of advantages for astrophotography, including very accurate precision tracking which is pertinent for longer exposure imaging, low backlash and smooth motion for stable tracking, compact designs for easier transport and a relatively high payload to weight ratio to accomodate a much wider range of equipment.

33 lbs Payload Capacity

The Sky-Watcher Wave 150i weighs only 12.8 lbs, yet it can withstand a native payload capacity of 33 lbs without counterweights, but up to 55 lbs with a countweight.

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 sideral, lunar and solar tracking. This means it can be reliably used for nighttime astrophotography, moon capture and stunning solar imaging!
