Meade 07028 overview

  • 1Description

The X-Wedge Equatorial Wedge from Meade delivers smooth and accurate altitude and azimuth adjustments of a tripod and pier mounted optical tubes. The X-Wedge is mounted between the optical tube and the tripod to match the observer's latitude, achieving precise polar alignment of your telescope. Machined from a solid block of lightweight ultra-rigid aircraft aluminum, this wedge outperformed competing equatorial wedges, proving to be 30 percent more stable. The enhanced stability provided by the X-Wedge is essential for achieving tack-sharp images of deep sky objects such as galaxies and nebulae.

Compatibility
For mounting with Meade field tripods as supplied with models including 10", 12", 14" diameter LX50, LX90, LX200, RCX400, and LX600 telescopes. X-Wedge can also be pier mounted (hardware sold separately).
Function
The wedge allows the astrophotographer to align the telescope's axis of rotation with the Earth's axis. This alignment eliminates long arcs, trails, and streaks due to field rotation. For exposures lasting five minutes or longer, equatorial mounting is required for tack-sharp images.
Construction
CNC machined from a single block of ultra-rigid aircraft grade aluminum, this wedge features smooth, accurate altitude and azimuth adjustments. The rugged build quality also provides exceptional vibration dampening of larger diameter Schmidt-Cassegrain and Advanced Coma Free optical tubes.

    Meade 07028 reviews

    X-Wedge Equatorial Wedge is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strong, Stable and well made. Highly recommended. I recently purchased the Meade X-Wedge so that I could use my 12 LX200 GPS for some astrophotography projects. Mounting it on my Super Field Tripod was a simple task and within an hour I had the scope aligned and ready for viewing. The X-Wedge proved to be a strong and stable equitorial platform with easy and smooth adjustments for aligning. The fit and finish was high quality and the included hardware was everything that was needed to quickly assemble and use the X-Wedge. I am very pleased with this product and would recommend it to anyone interested in using a large Meade SCT for night sky photography.
