Telescope Balancing Kits

Our Balance Kits have everything needed to balance your scope -
SCT, DOB or Newt. Each kit comes with a mounting rail, two 1 lb
twist-lock counterweights and all necessary hardware for installation
and use. Weights can be quickly installed and removed without tools,
just twist and slide to the desired position. Additional one and two
pound weights available below.

The SCT kits have stainless steel hardware for mounting the rail to
existing holes on the OTA. No drilling, just install the rail with the
supplied allen wrench, slide the counterweights onto the rail, and
twist to tighten. Counterweights can be stacked or separate, and
the cylindrical counterweights can be mounted either on end, or
on their side for off-axis 2D and 3D applications.

The DOB/Newtonian kit comes with a 24" rail, 2 one lb pancake
counterweights, 3M adhesive mounting pads and stainless steel
hardware for custom installations. Quick no-tools balancing after
eyepiece changes is a snap with twist-lock weights! Extra
counterweights are available for balancing bigger loads.

Weights are threaded 1/4-20, powder coated gloss black.
