This is a fantastic wedge. It is for Latitudes 24? - 50? North. I have tried all the Meade wedges and this one blows them out of the water. It is very smooth and easy to align. I am moving from my LX200, to a Losmandy, so I won't be needing this wedge any longer. It is in nearly perfect condition, with only minor surface scratches, from use. All the original parts are included, and it will be shipped in the original box.

"It is a marvel to behold and touch. Smooth, flawless, black obsidian perfection. I have monitored the progress of Frank's production run for months, seen the photos, studied the specs but nothing quite prepares you for the real thing. The weight, smooth blemish free finish, the joins almost impossible to feel. Everything fits perfectly. Sheer quality. Quality like Frank's labour of love really is well worth the wait and nothing competes." --From Dr. David Davies - UK
