Meade Equatorial Wedge for 8" ACF and SCT models
Includes both to attach to Tripod and Alt Adjustment

Meade 8" Equatorial Wedge #07002. Allows for polar alignment of Meade 8" model ACF and SCT models, as required for long exposure astrophotography and imaging. For use with Meade Field Tripods as supplied with compatible models. Compatible with Meade LX90 models with addition of LX90 Wedge Adapter, item 07389.


Equatorial alignment is required for astrophotography and imaging exposures longer than about 5 minutes. The Meade 8" Wedge is mounted between a telescope and the tripod to accomplish the tilt of an equatorial type mount that matches the observer's latitude and permits precise polar alignment of your telescope. The wedge allows the astrophotographer to align the telescope's axis of rotation with the Earth's axis of rotation. This alignment eliminates stars in your long exposure photograph from appearing as a long arc, trail or streak due to an effect known as field rotation. For images under approximately 5 minutes a wedge is not necessary and the telescope can be set up in altitude-azimuth (alt-az) configuration as normally used for visual observation.


Features heavy duty cast aluminum construction with latitude and longitude fine adjustments and a compass to use the magnetic pole as a starting reference. For use with the Meade field tripods as supplied with all compatible models. Recommended for 8” telescopes. Compatible with Meade SC and ACF models including 2080, LX50 and LX200. Adapter required for use with all LX90 models, available separately as item 07389.

INTERNATIONAL BIDDERS:  Please contact me first before bidding!  There are some countries I will not ship to.  Please ask first.  Be sure to check your import restrictions!  Some countries have import restrictions on gold, silver and jewelry, including watches.  International shipping with insurance can be expensive and the item may not be fully covered if it is insured, due to the shipper's (and sometimes the destination country's) set limits on insurance.  Shipping must be tractable.  I will file a claim if the package is not received, but the risk is yours.  Packages can get held up in customs, which I have no control over. I am not responsible for customs or import duties, fees or taxes, customs seizures or damage caused by customs agents.  I have shipped to Canada, many European countries and Japan.
