Counterweights help optimize the performance of your Meade LX850 mount by allowing you to balance the attached telescope for smooth, precise motion adjustments. If you acquire a telescope that is heavier than the one that came with your equatorial mount and tripod, you'll likely need additional counterweights to optimize balance of the system. You may also need an extra counterweight if you add a lot of heavy astrophotography gear to your system to help balance heavier camera-equipped loads. Features stainless steel construction for ultimate durability, and is threaded for counterweight shaft on the mount.
