What the user knows the problem Superpolhöhenwiege! Setting the Rec and Dec axis has little to do with precision and patience for time-consuming game. If you want to fix it and then managed the wedge, they braced themselves and the beautiful setting is gone. This is due to change, among others, the flatness between Wedge and tripod and several other parameters fix the setting on. The swing out through the open design is also very high, which can become a nuisance when taking pictures. With our tuning version of these problems belong to the past.


All the bearings of the shafts are accurate to the revision. This means that they are in brass / bronze mounted slidable. When turning the dials is thus an immediate move to one of changing the direction. Even when changing the direction of rotation is only a slight backlash to recognize what is also barely noticeable. The setting can now be done with two fingers on the wheel clean slide.

Above you can see how clean the shafts are stored. No more rough game between the casting and the shaft. For use is a suitable (in small amounts) outstanding high-performance grease for all the climatic conditions in astronomy well.

The plan terms of wedge and tripod is as accurate revised. Both surfaces are milled to each other appropriately, so that a precise flatness produced. No tilting and thus conditional bracing during fixing more after setting the wedge. There is even enough to tighten the central screw and the wedge is firmly on schedule.

Highly accurate revision and the best materials guarantee a lot of fun while shooting and viewing. From a series product is a precision instrument for the highest standards.

The factory of the right ascension axis thrust bearing is also replaced by a precise unit. Due to the built of brass screw us out to the M14 and solid aluminum bearing block as an abutment, a virtually backlash-free motion of the right ascension axis is possible. .- Before the return movement of the bearing block, due Rektaszensionsrotation, is not simply passed through a pin, but by a well fitted ball bearings which just has so much game that it just can move freely.

The factory cage open the wedge has the disadvantage that when locking the tilt plate is again the default setting. The big game between the cheek and angle plate is the problem. Again we are working, take out the game and set a 3 anodized aluminum shafts between the cheeks. This means that once the cage is now open to the closed-end and the decay time is significantly reduced.

Almost all of our materials used are rustproof and can therefore handle all weather conditions. Each wedge is different and vary the mass. Thus, each tuning something special and so also an individual process. Not only the wedge shown here can be tuned. Each wedge is revised Commercial in great detail. Please contact us and we agree that straightforward approach from each other.

Enclosed is a letter from a super-tuning wedge owners:

MASTRO Hi-Tec Team

I want to thank you for the conversion of very shaky and thus without tuning thanks for astrophotography virtually unusable Superpolhöhenwiege Meade, with you. The wedge is much more stable through the conversion and the decay time became much shorter. Setting the Rec and May. Axes is fun because it can now be precisely what the previous one but with limited success, had to be somehow curled out. I am with your conversion very pleased and will gladly recommend you. Astrophotography is fun again.
