Home Accessories Celestron Accessories Celestron HD Pro Wedge
Celestrons HD Pro Equatorial Wedge is designed to support our fork mounted Schmidt Cassegrain Telescopes up to 11 inch apertures. The HD Pro provides a heavy duty, stable platform that is perfect for astroimaging and guarantees minimal vibration eliminating field rotation. A low latitude range of 0-90 degrees makes this wedge functional for use at the equator. An equatorial wedge allows fork mounted tlescopes to track in the same way as a German equatorial mount, essential for long exposure astrophotograhy.

Works with all of the CPC range and NexStar Evolution 925 TelescopesHD 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
