Vixen GP Counterbalance Shaft & Weights

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I'm new to this forum and also new to the hobby. I've recently bought second hand an Orion Optics 200mm Schmidt Newtonian with a Vixen GP mount. However the friend who I bought it from forgot the counterweight shaft and weights, he therefore sent them in the post and of course they have not been seen since.

So my question is, does anyone know of any second hand parts that are available? If not then where is the best place to purchase the shaft and counter weights. Also, what amount of weight would be required to balance the scope I have?

Many thanks.
