Why you will produce better astronomy photos with this polar wedge
How it is different to a normal tripod head? If you want to photograph the night sky with a mini-mount, then you definitely already know this question. You can align a tripod head with the Pole Star too, but this is not its intended use. It offers free movement in many directions - however, alignment remains inaccurate and you need to exactly know the behaviour of your tripod head to successfully take photos.
A polar wedge makes it easier for you! It helps you to align your camera with the north celestial pole as if it were a large telescope, with degree-accuracy and reproducable at any time. This will help you to created better-tracked images or successfully use a telephoto lens.
Better altitude and azimuth settings
At night, don't leave anything to chance: especially in the dark, it is important that everything works smoothly and immediately. The altitude and azimuth setting work smoothly: stainless steel screws make it easier to set the required altitude and azimuth.
Precise bubble level
A bubble level you can rely on. Inconspicuously integrated into the polar wedge, you will find the exact horizontal position for your tripod.
Firm grip for every Vixen-style rail
A broad, clamp on the side holds your tracker or mini-mount in a stable position. What's great is: where other models only clamp using a single screw, the Deluxe Polar Wedge provides a firm but very gentle hold.
Slender and high: from 10 to 60 degrees
We have attached a great deal of importance to a very slender design. Even when an astrotracker is attached, the screws remain freely accessible.
CNC-manufactured product made in Portugal
Made from CNC-manufactured components, the polar wedge not only looks great, it is great. We produce them in small quantities in our manufacturing facility in Portugal. Thanks to the high quality surface, the polar wedge is durable and will accompany you on your astrophotography journey for many years.
Simply attach and get going
Assembling, aligning and getting going: it's so easy with the Deluxe Polar Wedge. Your alignment remains stable all night.
