Dismount counterweights when storing tripod?

Recommended Posts

You don't say what size your rig is. If you don't need to take the weights off to reduce the weight and accident risk when carrying it, you don't need to worry. Nothing bad will happen if you just store the mount with the weight on. But moving it with a 5 or 10Kg weight attached could be asking for some kind of trouble or accident.

Steve- Rich,

Good idea.

I have got to redo the balance of my scope so will mark the weight positions and also mark the tube (masking tape or similar) as I sometimes have to rotate it in the rings to get a comfortable EP angle.
