The equatorial wedge is required for long-exposure astrophotography and permits precise polar alignment of the telescope in the equatorial mode.  For short exposure images of less than about 5 minutes, the wedge is not required.

    Comments about Meade 8" Equatorial Wedge:

    The parts were not all contained in the box and a couple of adjustment knobs stripped out.
    The factory rep. was nice but said I had to return the whole item for replacement.I am at day 6 of 8 on return time.I hope I don't get the same type of knobs as they were made of a cheap plastic covering a really nice stainless hex bolt.
    The instructions did not match the product materials so I went online to MEADE and they had up to date instructions up until I tried to align
    my LX90 and promptly twisted off 2 of the latitude knobs securing the position.

          Comments about Meade 8" Equatorial Wedge:

          This is a nicely built product. I have no compaints about it but to read the directions completely on aligning the scope before you use it. I just glanced over it and figured it wouldn't be too bad, but realized I needed to actually read the instructions on alignign the scope with this mount.
