Celestron Heavy Duty Equatorial Wedge for CPC/CPC Deluxe telescopes

Unlock the full imaging potential of your Celestron CPC or CPC Deluxe telescope with the Celestron Heavy Duty equatorial wedge.

Altazimuth mounts are limited to approximately 30 seconds of tracking before field-rotation becomes noticeable. Considerably longer exposures are possible by employing an equatorial wedge.

Simply attach the Heavy Duty wedge to the tripod and attach the CPC or CPC Deluxe computerized mount to the wedge tilt-plate. Roughly set the latitude and azimuth adjusters for a very rough polar alignment. Configure the NexStar* or NexStar+ hand controllers for EQ North or EQ South tracking, perform a three-star alignment, then activate and polar alignment routine and follow the instructions on-screen.
