After considering the feedback from various iterations of the EQ6Wedge over the years, we decided to reconsider the project and take a number of new approaches. This has resulted in several options, at different price points, to suit different end users and their circumstances. See below…….
The EQ6Wedge was an innovative product which aimed to address a weakness in the design of the popular SkyWatcher EQ6 Mount.
Unfortunately it was expensive to manufacture and could be difficult to fit correctly, due to the varying quality and tolerances of the mount, as well as the DIY skills (or not) of the owner. It was also dependent on the quality of an externally sourced component part.
To remedy these issues we’re offering a number of new products which we hope will address the problem more completely.
The new products are, in ascending order of price:
EQ6Bolt – a direct replacement for the original adjustment bolt made of a Stainless Steel which is highly resistant to bending and may be all you need if your payload is modest. In stock with many in use already.
EQ6Rail – a new product that is surprisingly simple in operation and tremendous value!
