One Pound End Counterweights for GEM Counterweight Shafts
with Threaded Holes

These weights replace the toe-saver screw cap on your GEM mount with
a one pound weight, or 2 or 3 pounds if you stack more weights. Just a
bit more weight is often needed than is supplied with the mount.

Black powder coated steel, stainless steel threaded stud and nylon washer.
Screws into the threaded hole in the end of the counterweight shaft. Shipped
USPS Priority mail.

#EQW1 fits most imported GEM mounts from Orion, Celestron, etc, that have
a 6mm threaded hole in the end of the counterweight shaft. 6mm is about
1/4 inch diameter.

#EQW2 fits Meade LXD55/75 shafts with 8mm threaded hole in the end of the
shaft. 8mm is a bit bigger than the diameter of a wooden pencil.

#EQW3 fits Celestron CGE mount shafts with 3/8-16 threaded hole in the end
of the shaft. Beware, Celestron is now shipping some other size! More info
as we get it.

#EQW3 fits GM8 and G11!

#EQW5 male threads are M12, female hole on other side is threaded M8.
Additional #EQW2 weights will stack on the #EQW5.
