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 super-portable Maksutov SLT telescopes made by Celestron.
We manufacture this stiff yet lightweight equatorial-mount wedge using aluminum extrusion and steel shaft parts echeiving a total weight under 2Kg (aprox. 4Lb).
It is adjustable for latitudes from 0 to 90º 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 fit SE mounts or other mounts made by Celestron. But we can manufacture special adapters to fit this wedge on other mounts and tripods, just ask!
Fotos show a NexStar 127SLT Maksutov telescope mounted on this wedge using a standard SLT tripod.
The wedge is fixed to the tripod with a center 1/4" bolt and holds the scope mount with a center 1/4" bolt.
CNC machined from 6061 anodized aluminum and 1045 steel.
