**This wedge will allow you to perform polar alignment of your Celestron SLT scope!
It is designed to enable long-exposure piggy-back astroimaging with the Maksutov SLT telescopes made by Celestron.
I manufacture this stiff yet lightweight equatorial-mount wedge using aluminum extrusion and steel shaft parts achieving a total weight under 2Kg (aprox. 4Lb).
It is adjustable for latitudes of 0 to 90º with engraved scales on the sides and incorporates fine adjustment knobs for Azimuth and Latitude adjustment. **
This wedge specifically fits Celestron SLT tripods and Celestron SLT scope mounts, it does not directly fit SE mounts or other mounts made by Celestron. I can prepare special adapters to fit this wedge on other mounts and tripods of similar size, just ask! Photos show a NexStar 127SLT Maksutov telescope mounted on this wedge using a standard SLT tripod. The wedge is fixed to tripod with a center 1/4" bolt and holds the scope mount with another center 1/4" bolt. CNC machined from 6061 anodized aluminum and 1045 steel.
Please take into account that all the accesories I sell on Tindie are my own design and make. Equatorial wedges in particular are fabricated on request and although I keep pre-machined parts it takes some days to prepare each one after order is placed.
