    EQ6 Rail.... Anybody got one ??

    I do not see how fitting a neq6 wedge would effect your imaging as once fitted and set it only makes it easier to adjust the mount.. It does not effect your tracking so if your mount is WELL set and polar alaigned it will continue to do so.. I fitted one and have not experienced any problems, but am the first to admit that I am a real amateur at imaging and only use a DSLR.

    Yes mine has a small delve on the north side but it is the South side that takes all the load not perfect but much improved on the original sorry light bucket have just read your original post no you could not remove the bolts to pack your mount away as I said the South bolt fits into a hole on the cylinder part and you might have a job realiging this without dismantling your mount. Can't you leave the bolts in place when you pack away.

    Yes light bucket I do wish I had taken photos when I fitted mine as they would explain a lot anyway after the tapered base unit is in place a cylinder shape piece with grooves lays on the tray which you grease this cylinder has a hole for the bolt to fit into it then pushes against the South side of the wedge because of our latitude this is the side that bares most of the weight the north bolt then locks everything down the idea is that the direction of push is straight thereby stoppng the bolt from bending. Don't know if I have explaned it well do know I have not put any comers or full stops. I have just spent a while outside it is far to light here to test the drift align but looking through the eye piece onto a just visable star I could move the star around with ease using the bolts.

    Carney I use PhD to drift align and am fortunate to have a permanent setup but I was having problems one of my bolts had badly scored the wedge so kept loosing alignment. I did make steel plates that I drilled and tapped out and fixed to the wedge this worked fine but I still had the problem of the bolt being at an angle to the wedge. The new wedge has an angled plate and over comes this problem there by taking a lot of strain of the South bolt. I will look into the new one as and when it becomes available but the only reason would be it looks really smart.In the mean time I am very happy with the rail system.

    EQ6 Rail.... Anybody got one ??

    Well I had time today so loaded up my equinox 120 but to lighten the load a little I changed my setup and did away with my duel mount bar and st80 guide scope this saved 3kg and only used the 120 with a spotting scope as guide scope.. Moving the latitude bolts was a dream I could do micro adjustments with ease .So If I get time this weekend will try with my usual setup and the extra weight but after today's trial I am sure it will be fine. So it looks like the eq6 rail was a good purchase.

    Well cranny if we ever get any clear weather I will say how things perform I .but I must say movement is very smooth compared to the original.
