An equatorial wedge allows fork mounted tlescopes to track in the same way as a German equatorial mount, essential for long exposure astrophotograhy.
Built-in features include altitude/azimuth adjustment controls with oversized knobs attached for easy polar alignment, a hand control holder that provides the option of placing on the wedge or the fork arm, a tilt plate for easier mounting of the telescope by simply rotating the scope onto the wedge, and a large 14 mm diameter latitude adjustment screw to add strength and stability while supplying less vibration and easier rotation with a heavy telescope.
Works with all of the CPC range and NexStar Evolution 925 Telescopes
HD Pro Wedge - General Features
14mm Diameter Latitude Adjustment Screw - Adds strength and stability. Does not flex or bend providing less vibration and making it easier to rotate a heavy telescope.
0-90 Degree Latitude Range - Low latitude range, perfect for use at the equator.
Built-in Hand Control Holder - Allows user to place the hand control on the wedge or fork arm. Hand control won't fall off when fork arm is angled towards the ground.
Tilt Plate - Recesses to fit base of telescope and base of scope drops into place just by rotating. Mounting telescope on wedge becomes easier.
Heavy Duty Side Plates - More rigid with more material provides less vibration while imaging.
Well made This is a solid, well made piece of equipment. No real difficulties setting it up other than being a tad heavy when combined to the tripod. However, very pleased with the ease of assembly, set-up etc. making photography a sheer joy (clear skies permitting of course). (21/04/2017) John Jarman - Aspatria
