Celestron HD Pro Wedge

BH #CEHDPW • MFR #93664
Celestron HD Pro Wedge
Key Features
  • For Schmidt Cassegrain Telescopes
  • Functional Use at Equatorial Locations
  • Heavy Duty, Stable Platform
  • Built-in Hand Control Holder
The HD Pro Wedge from Celestron is designed for fork-mounted Celestron Schmidt Cassegrain Telescopes up to 11". The wedge provides a stable and heavy-duty platform that minimizes vibrations during astro-imaging. As the telescope's motor drive tracks the stars across the sky from east to west, the HD Pro Wedge tilts the telescope's R.A. into polar alignment allowing the motor drive to track an arc around the polar axis as the stars move across the celestial sphere. The wedge comes pre-assembled but some adjustment will be necessary.

Functional for use at the equator, the HD Pro Wedge can be configured for either a latitude range of 0-50° or 40-90°, depending on your location. The center of gravity can be adjusted for maximum stability. There are over-sized adjustment knobs for both altitude and azimuth for easy polar alignment. A holder for the hand control can be placed on the wedge or the fork arm. The tilt plate allows the telescope to be easily mounted onto the wedge and a large 14 mm diameter latitude adjustment screw adds to the stability of the HD Pro Wedge.

question

Thank you all for taking your time to help me. As some of you own a NexStar 8SE you'll be able to answer that: I've heard also that the Nexstar 8 SE is not geared accurately enough for photography, is that true? With this wedge I'll be able to make astrophotography?
Asked by: Rodrigo Alencar Pereira Abreu e.
This device does not have a motor to track the stars. It is a chunk of metal that converts an azel mount into a polar mount. Camera gear needs a motorized tracker.

Does it work for the Celestron CGEM II 800 EdgeHD 8"?
Asked by: Jimmy
No, because the CGEM II is a German equatorial mount, you do need an HD Pro Wedge which is used for an Alt/Azm type mount. Sincerely, Garrett at Celestron

Will this accecpt an 8se motorized base? Or do i have to get the "other wedge" i need to be alke to swap scopes. Cpc 11HD and nexstar 8se.
Asked by: Adam
This is a tricky one, I'm not sure. I know that the Pro Wedge is designed for the CPC 8 to 11, but not sure if it will accept the Nextar 8se. The base of the 8se might not fit the Pro Wedge properly. Best to ask Celestron directly.

Does it work for Celestron Nexstar 8SE base?
Asked by: Rodrigo Alencar Pereira Abreu e.
Hi, I use the HD Pro Wedge with 8se base and it works good. It will take a little patience in getting your alignment process right, research as much info as you can (internet). Regards, Luke Murphy.
