Description

Details

Celestron Heavy-Duty CPC Wedge

For optimal performance in astronomical observing that involves setting circles or motorized tracking, Celestron's telescopes with a fork mount and motor drive must be mounted on an Equatorial Wedge. The wedge allows you to tilt the telescope so that its polar axis (R.A. axis) is parallel to the Earth's axis.

The angle of tilt will depend on your latitude when the telescope is level. The angle between the horizon level and the polar axis will equal your latitude when the telescope's axis is parallel with that of the Earth's. Once properly mounted and adjusted on the wedge, the telescope is said to be equatorially mounted and its setting circles and included slow motion controls can be used to locate deep-sky objects. An upgrade kit with a deluxe latitude adjuster and azimuth controls for easy polar alignment is available.
