Celestron NexStar SE & Evolution Wedge for 6" & 8" Telescopes
This Celestron wedge was designed to fit the Nexstar SE and Nexstar Evolution 6 and 8 inch telescopes. An essential imaging accessory for any Nexstar SCT owner, a wedge eliminates the dual direction tracking of a traditional Alt-Az mount providing the smooth arcing motion necessary for stable long exposure images. It essentially turns your Alt-Az mount into an EQ! Say goodbye to field rotation! Engineered to be as minimal in weight as possible while still providing a stable plat form for 6 and 8" telescopes, the Nexstar wedge is your ticket to incredible night sky imaging.

- Questions & Answers
Product QuestionsI have a somewhat old version of the 6" SE - will it work with that model? Is this a new product offering from Celestron?I'm thinking of purchasing a 9.25 evolution. 1. Will this wedge work with this or is there another wedge for 9.25. 2. Will the weight of wedge compromise the stability of tripod.Question by: Jimmy on May 20, 2016 1:59:00 PMNo, this wedge will only work for the 6" and 8" Evolution scopes. The wedge you want is the CE-93664 CPC HD wedge: https://www.optcorp.com/celestron-cpc-heavy-duty-wedge-hd-pro.html. This heavier wedge will have no issues attaching the Evolution fork to the existing tripod. You may still need to shield the scope from the wind due to the size of the 9.25" tube on the single fork arm, but the scope will not be any less stable by adding the HD wedge.Answer by: Chris Hendren on May 24, 2016 3:14:00 PMQuestion by: Alex Pinto on Jan 19, 2017 12:07:00 PMThe wedge won't make the scope more unstable than it is in Alt Az, but the wedge with the standard tripod might a bit. You will want to use vibration suppression pads and potentially strap weights to the tripod or spreader bar to deaden vibration. If you can mount the wedge to a heavier tripod, that would help even further.
