I reported, earlier, that I found this Celestron 6se at one of our local thrift stores. It turns out to be fully functional with beautiful optics and works just as it should. After looking around the Internet I found that someone had made an equatorial wedge for their scope -- I thought I'd do the same.
Later I found an entry about using an older wedge for this newer telescope. It works just right. All the holes lined up perfectly -- and with a bit of foolin' around -- I've gotten the Celestron 6se equatorially mounted.

I used it last night for a bit, mainly to check the collimation. It was "right on". The telescope is as close to "like-new" as one could hope for!!
