Wedge value
      #5490119 - 10/26/12 12:14 PM

I am in need of some sage advice from knowledgeable members here.

Some time ago I helped out Frank Sperl when he was getting into the LX200GPS line of telescopes by providing various specifications both of the telescope and the Giant Field Tripod, in return Frank rebuilt my Meade Super Wedge. The side frames were squared as well as the base but the rest was replaced with the parts he used to make his Mitty wedges as that time. I have put off insuring my observatory and equipment for far to long so I am making a list with values at my agents request but I am unsure of what the wedge value should be.

I would appreciate any and all suggestions.

Thank you,

$275 to $400, insure for $500 for replacement as the UltraWedge is more than that.
