Never assume anything! Do you have some callipers? A steel rule might work across the diameter wt the end of the shaft.

I do have calipers!  Mounts still in London though

I received my Mk2 in December and after checking mine was slightly larger at 40.5mm Bernard checked his remaining units and they were all the same size. A quick call to Bernard should clarify your counterweight shaft size.

I finally collected the mount late last night. Dropped of the CW shaft at a friends to get CWs sorted out.

Solid looking bit of kit 😍

My friend sent me an image of the nylon bushes he has made for lining the CWs.

You didn't go for the losmandy clamp either? What are your plans for mounting equipment on the DEC drive?

Congrats on the new mount Adam! Should open up a whole new range of focal length should you be tempted!

Thanks David. I’ll be keen to get my 10” Newt on it, and kinda regret selling a 12” PDS I had.

I’m thinking about how I can adapt my Sumerian 16” to fit on mine 😬
