Meade X-Wedge Equatorial Wedge for LX200 and LX600 Telescopes

The Meade X-Wedge Equatorial Wedge is designed for Meade LX200 and LX600 fork-mounted telescopes to provide equatorial tracking.

Equatorial tracking is important for long-exposure astrophotography of more than 30 seconds. Unlike alt-azimuth tracking, equatorial tracking enables the telescope to rotate with the sky, eliminating field-rotation and star trails.
