Meade Ultra-Wedge
Meade Ultrawedge for long exposure astrophotography and imaging with Meade LX200 models. Very heavy duty wedge for mounting of 10 to 14" LX200 models. LX90 compatible with addition of available adapter plate #07389. Required for astrophotography and imaging exposures longer than about 5 minutes.The Equatorial Wedge is is used in between a normally alt-azimuth mounted telescope and its tripod to accomplish the tilt which would otherwise be made by having an equatorial mount. This tilt matches the observer's latitude, and permits the precise polar alignment of your telescope as required for long exposure astrophotography. This eliminates an effect called field rotation, where stars appear in completed photographs as an arc, trail or streak. Super heavy duty aluminum castings with large (3" diameter) hand control knobs for both azimuth and latitude. Includes compass for using the magnetic pole as a starting reference point. For use with Meade Field Tripods as supplied with all compatible models.
