Meade Equatorial Wedge for 8" LX200/LX400 Telescopes

Meade's standard 8" equatorial wedge attaches to the Standard Field Tripod by means of a manual knob. It turns your 8" LX200 or LX400 alt-azimuth telescope into an equatorial model so that you can take long-exposure (over 5 minutes) photographs and record stars as pinpoints instead of streaks...an effect of field rotation. The addition of a properly aligned wedge aligns your telescope's axis of rotation to the earth's axis of rotation, which eliminates field rotation.



It comes with an azimuth adjustment to allow you to rotate the wedge without picking up the tripod, helping with polar alignment. Also included is a latitude adjuster. The latitude you set your wedge at will depend upon your location. The 8" equatorial wedge allows for adjustment from 15º to 64º. Features heavy duty cast aluminum construction and a compass to use the magnetic pole as a starting reference.
