hello, I just purchased the Celestron Heavy Duty Wedge 93655 and i notice that there are degrees on the side 0-90. would you know what degree it should be set at to do a basic 3 star alignment? Or how does it work?

Thanks
goody

Hi

That is a matter of the latitude at your location. You can set it if you know your latitude, but aiming the scope at Polaris, then locking the wedge at that elevation will also work. Should be instructions with the wedge.
