Product Description

This cover will protect the altazimuth mount 12" Meade LX200GPS Schmidt-Cassegrain and RCX400 Ritchey-Chrétien dual fork arm catadioptric telescopes that sit directly on a tripod with their fork arms pointing at the zenith.

If your scope is mounted on a factory equatorial wedge so that 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 (the #TG14 or #TG16) 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 62" in circumference by 43" 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.
