ST80 counter weight


Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm new to astronomy, using an ST80 on an EQ5 synscan. My problem is, where can I get a lighter counter weight appx 1kg ? I'm improvising with a 1kg dumbell weight at the moment!!!!!

Many thanks.

I had the same problem and I found some 1kg celestron weight on ebay.  The holes to mount them on the counter weight shaft were narrower so I had to have them drilled out but it wasn't a great cost.
