This 26 lb. counterweight helps optimize the performance of your Meade LX850 mount by allowing you to balance any 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 it threads directly onto the counterweight shaft of the LX850 mount for a secure and slip-free connection.

Designed and Manufactured in North America.
