Product Description

This cover will protect any altazimuth mount 10" or 11" Schmidt-Cassegrain dual fork arm catadioptric telescope that sits directly on a tripod with its fork arms pointing at the zenith. Such scopes include the Celestron NexStar 11 GPS, the Meade 10" LX200GPS and RCX400, etc.

If your scope is mounted on a factory equatorial wedge so its fork arms tilt over to point at the celestial pole, this cover should fit properly over the rectangular wedge. However, in the case of the Meade Ultrawedge and other deluxe or oversize aftermarket wedges, you may need a larger circumference cover to fit the wedge. In all cases, if your scope is mounted on an equatorial wedge, measure the circumference of the wedge to be sure exactly which cover will fit your particular installation before ordering, particularly if you have a deluxe or oversize aftermarket wedge. This cover measures 64" in circumference by 42" high.

To install the cover on an altazimuth mount scope, aim the optical tube at the zenith, parallel to the fork arms, and slip the cover over it and the drive base.
