Older-style cast Celestron wedge. Has altitude fine adjustment bolt, but doesn't have the azimuth adjusters like some I've seen. I'm including a 3/4" plywood spacer and bolts I used to attach the base of my NexStar 8 GPS, since the wedge is too narrow for the wider GPS/CPC-style bases. Also including the tool-less wedge-to-tripod bolts. Should work fine without the spacer for a NexStar SE (I think). Recently lucked into a massive upgrade to an HD wedge, and am moving soon so I'd like to get this one gone and save on the weight. Price reflects my motivation to get it out of the garage: $20 + actual shipping. As an estimate, I put in the zip code here in VA, and my new zip code in CA, and UPS shipping comes to an estimated $29.71.

Last picture shows the wedge in use with the original NexStar tripod and NexStar 8 GPS. I have confirmed that a CPC1100 will mount on this wedge and operate at the Washington DC latitude without interfering, but I'd recommend against it for a scope that large. The NexStar 8 will sit on the floor while mounted on the wedge without tipping over. However the CPC's higher center of gravity means the scope will tip over if left in a position with the handle pointing up for carry, meaning you have to remove the scope from the wedge, which is no small feat with a 66# CPC1100.

Again, $20 + actual shipping. Box is 15" x 12" x 11", and weighs somewhere between 8-9 lbs.
