Meade 8" Equatorial Wedge
Meade Equatorial Wedge for long exposure astrophotography and imaging with Meade LX200 models. Not compatible with LX90, see stock number 07002-1. Required for astrophotography and imaging exposures longer than about 5 minutes. For images under approximately 5 minutes a wedge is not necessary. The Equatorial Wedge is is mounted between a telescope and the tripod to accomplish the tilt of an Equatorial Mount that matches the observer's latitude. This permits precise polar alignment of your telescope, eliminating stars appearing as an arc, trail or streak due to an effect known as field rotation by allowing you to align the telescope's axis of rotation with the Earth's axis of rotation. Heavy duty cast aluminum construction with latitude and longitude fine adjustments and a compass to use the magnetic pole as a starting reference. For use with the Meade field tripods as supplied with all compatible models.
