Came triple boxed and in great shape.

I marked the position of Polaris before hand, and adjusting for azimuth and elevation was easy enough using the Celestron setup routine in the hand control.

Very well made, sturdy, and relatively easy to use and adjust.

I purchased this wedge because I believe in the quality of Celestron Telescopes and Accesories. This wedge is a great photographic asset if your a seasoned night sky photographer or beginner "like me" astrophotographer..this wedge is heavy and as the last reviewer said, you had better have a heavy weight tripod to handle it and your scope..I watched videos prior to the delivery and was able to put it together and mount with very little effort and also having a 8" Nexstar on a CPC tripod the weght wasnt an issue trying to mount the optics sideways to the tilted plate..This is a well made product and easy to set the Dec. and RA. seetings, I appreciated the hand-control hooks on each side of the wedge, and the bubble level in the baseplate..It arrived earlier than expected, and as usual, my cudoz to Amazon for a pleasent buying experienc..

This wedge puts the "heavy" into heavy-duty. The construction is different than the Meade design, but better, in that there are a little more fine adjustments that can be made, and while the scope is set-up. Having the ability to change azimuth while being totally set-up with the scope is a huge plus. This wedge does require a heavy-duty tripod to use. I rigged my Meade tripod to use this wedge by changing the center screw. It can be done for about a $0.50 nut and 10 minutes of time. If you need a wedge, you'll pay for this one, but it'll be a great investment.

This new version of Celestron's wedge for CPC series telescopes really deserves the title "heavy-duty". Very well made, sturdy, and relatively easy to use and adjust. Unlike the older version where the adjusting rods and bolts were offered seperately as an option, they are now standard equipment. Mounting even the 65lb CPC1100 to this wedge is a snap!

I tested this wedge on a temporary wooden pier, not ideal, but I think I can separate the impact of the pier.

It arrived in good shape in sturdy box. It comes with instructions and all the "Allen" wrenches and bolts needed to set it up. I mounted a CPC1100 and the pier is higher than my tripod. I worried about the awkward lift and chance of dropping it. I put together a step up "platform" and installed the mount easily (65lbs to lift and I am not a big guy).

I marked the position of Polaris before hand, and adjusting for azimuth and elevation was easy enough using the Celestron setup routine in the hand control.

The wedge is sturdy but adds a bit of shake because it puts the OTA at the end of a long cantilever. Remember though that most of the shake was due to the flex in the hollow wooden pier.

I have ordered a steel pier and look forward to using the wedge for longer exposure video astronomy.
