Celestron’s new NexStar Evolution Wedge turns their venerable single fork arm telescopes into portable astroimaging powerhouses.
The very popular NexStar SE and NexStar Evolution telescopes are great for astrophotography, however an EQ wedge is necessary to take longer exposures and use an autoguider.
Why Do I Need a Wedge for Imaging?
Alt-Az tracking keeps objects centered, but a long enough exposure will reveal they rotate in the field of view. Adding a wedge allows the mount to track equatorially, thereby eliminating field rotation.
Celestron’s NexStar Evolution Wedge was reengineered from the ground-up, specifically tailored to the NexStar Evolution and SE’s size and styling. Weight is minimal to keep the whole setup light and portable, yet the platform is sturdy to support taking long exposure astrophotos.
