NEQ6 Wedge... What a piece of kit.


Recommended Posts

I have just finished servicing and fitting a belt mod on an NEQ6 for a customer.

As part of the job I also fitted an NEQ6 Wedge mod.


For those who have not seen these it eliminates the stupid 'bendy' Alt bolts syndrome that has plagued the NEQ6 from day one.


This kit is a precision engineered work of art.


Fitting requires the entire base of the mount to be removed and discarded, the kit then fits in its place.


The Alt is adjusted by screwing the adjusting knob in or out.

I saw this in person at the astro show in June when I spoke to Dion from astronomy shed and he let me have a go on the one on display. Have to agree Graham, awesome piece of kit. Were I still in possession of all my astro kit I would have bought one by now for sure.
