Meade Standard Equatorial Wedge For 7" & 8" Telescopes

The Meade Standard Equatorial Wedge is used for installing Meade 7" Maksutov and 8" ACF and Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes in the equatorial mode. For long-exposure astrophotography (longer than about 5 minutes) altazimuth-induced field rotation requires an equatorial wedge, which is fitted between the telescope and its standard field tripod. This wedge has easy-to-use knobs for making adjustments to set the angle for your latitude, and for precise polar alignment. It is ruggedly fabricated to provide a sturdy mounting for your 7" & 8" telescope, for doing astrophotography.
