The dovetail groove on the lens barrel mounting part is equipped with a USB 3.0 type A port, an auto guider port, and two power supply ports, making it easier to route cables when installing electronic accessories such as cameras. . In addition, the rear of the right ascension body is equipped with a hub with a USB type A port for PC connection, a hand controller port, a USB type B port, and a power input port. This hub doesn’t rotate, so you don’t have to worry about cables getting tangled.
WAVE150i has a balance adjustment function that allows you to freely rotate both the right ascension and declination axes by simply removing the fixing screws, and adjust the balance. By adjusting the right ascension axis balance when using a counterweight and the declination axis balance when attaching the lens barrel, you can not only maximize the performance of the mount, but also improve operational safety and overall system stability. will be planned.

* ·useful function*
You can use either equatorial mount mode or latitude mode depending on the purpose. If you want to enjoy observation, you can use the latitude and latitude mode, which eliminates the need for troublesome polar axis alignment.
Equipped with an auto home position function, the mount can be set to the home position before starting observation.
The mount’s latitude display and spirit level feature a red
illumination feature to aid during installation.
The WAVE100i comes with a secondary dovetail that can be attached to the counterweight port, allowing you to attach equipment weighing approximately 5 kg when using the latitude and latitude mode (depending on conditions such as the shape of the lens barrel). *WAVE 100i only
