Strainwave mounts are particularly suitable for serious astrophotographers who require precise control, and for these demanding applications Sky-Watcher has developed the Wave 150i Strainwave Mount! This Wave mount features strainwave gearing that provides a lot of power in a little package. The strainwave configuration offers several advantages over traditional mount designs including low-to-zero backlash and high torque for handling larger OTAs. With cable management, large payload capacity, and a small footprint, the Wave 150i is the ultimate portable imaging mount.

    • Stepper motor + belt drive and harmonic reducer for a 300:1 transmission ratio
    • Cable management built into DEC saddle
    • Works in both EQ and AZ modes
    • Built-in WiFi and Bluetooth
    • PC control capable via USB-B
    • Red LED backlighting for latitude scale and bubble level
    • Quiet, fast slewing up to 10 degrees per second
    • Small, powerful and portable
    • RA power-off braking function
    • Internal homing sensors on both axis
    • Compatible with Sky-Watcher SynScan hand controller (sold separately)

    Note: This mount does not come with a tripod; you will need to purchase one separately.
