Full details:

The AC218 MegaWedge is one of the world's finest wedges for the Meade LX200 (RCX,R,GPS & Classic) and LX90 series of SCTs and is ideally suited for all models when used with observatory piers.

Constructed of high precision CNC machined 20mm thick steel plate the wedge is both extraordinarily rigid and heavy weighing in at over 32kg (5 stone). In its 10th year of manufacture, the AC218 MegaWedge was designed specifically to provide a research standard mounting for observatory based Meade and Celestron SCTs.

Ideal for use with all Meade LX200R GPS and Classic telescopes. The wedge can be field tripod mounted (but is very heavy). as well as mounted on our Pro, Standard, and DIY observatory piers.

Equipped with smooth and precise slow-motion adjuster on both latitude and azimuth registers the MegaWedge is a delight to use and will provide the perfect foundation for advanced astro-imaging projects. The altitude tilt plate features a high precision ball and socket adjuster to make polar alignment adjustment easy - unlike competitor products the polar alignment remains perfect even when all fasteners are full tightened! The AC218 steel MegaWedge,the Pro is fast and easy to set-up in the field when using a tripod. Finished in black resin powder coat paint and supplied with all fastenings and instructions. The MegaWedge is suitable for latitudes between 63 and 35 degrees. (All of the UK to roughly southern Finland and south as far as Gibraltar).
