Used Celestron SE/Evolution Equatorial WedgeThis Celestron NexStar Equatorial Wedge was designed to fit the NexStar SE and NexStar Evolution 6 and 8 Inch Telescopes. An essential imaging accessory for any NexStar SCT owner, a wedge eliminates the dual direction tracking of a traditional Alt-Az mount. It essentially turns your Alt-Az mount into an EQ used by the best astrophotographers! Say goodbye to field rotation! Engineered to be as minimal in weight as possible while still providing a stable platform for 6 Inch and 8 Inch telescopes, the NexStar Wedge is your ticket to incredible night sky imaging.
The Wedge enables long exposure astrophotography and autoguiding by tilting the telescope's azimuth into an equatorial platform. This provides the smooth-motion tracking along an arc around the polar axis necessary for long exposure imaging.
The design is hefty yet portable. It weighs only 15 pounds but can carry a load up to 36 pounds. It has captive hardware with a no-tool operation and easily adjusts under load. There is a sturdy latitude adjustment screw with easy to read scale and an integrated bubble level.
