The new Wedge for NexStar Evolution and SE 6/8 mounts turns Celestrons venerable single fork arm telescopes into portable astroimaging powerhouses.
How it Works
Celestrons popular NexStar SE and their new NexStar Evolution Alt-Az mounted computerized telescopes are great for astrophotography, however an EQ wedge is necessary to take longer exposure images, or to advance further and use an autoguider. The Wedge enables long exposure astrophotography and autoguiding by tilting the telescope’s azimuth into an equatorial platform allowing it to track an arc around the polar axis.
Alt-Az tracking keeps objects centered, but a long enough exposure will reveal they rotate in the field of view. Adding a wedge allows the mount to track equatorially, thereby eliminating field rotation.
This Wedge was reengineered from the ground-up, specifically tailored to the NexStar Evolution and SE’s size and styling. Weight is minimal to keep the whole setup light and portable, yet the platform is sturdy to support taking long exposure astrophotos. The Wedge also easily adjusts under loads making the whole setup effortless.
All Ages, All Stages
Unlock the full imaging potential from your NexStar Evolution or SE 6/8 mount with this new Wedge! For beginner to intermediate planetary and deep space imagers, this wedge has a sturdy latitude adjustment screw with easy to read scale and integrated Bubble level. In addition, the captive hardware and tool-less operation mean you can be observing the stars in no time at all.
