Fornax FMW-200 Polar Alignment WEDGE for Fornax 10 Mark II
The Fornax FMW-200 wedge serves as an extremely sturdy polar alignment platform for the Mark II version of the Fornax 10 LighTrack mobile tracking mount.
Its sturdiness also helps to achieve more accurate tracking with your Lightrack II.
2 bolts included to secure a Fornax 10 LighTrack mark II mount.
Vertical (altitude) alignment is carried out by the wheels on the two sides. These are not just simple securing bolts... The internal smaller knobs move the top of the wedge via a friction driven manual drive system.
Once aligned, you can secure the position with the larger silver knobs by turning them inward.
By the way, if you completely unwind the silver knobs so that these touch the smaller black knobs, you can use the larger knobs (on one side up and on the other side down) for vertical alignment. These larger knobs provide easier alignment due their more comfortable size.
It might sound complicated, but you'll have to try it to see how simple it is. It'll take just few minutes of practice to make it working well.
Horizontal (azimutal) alignment is carried out by the small stainless steel bolts near the bottom of the wedge. Once alignment complete, the horizontal plate can be fixed by three small black thumbscrews.
