7.5 kg painted steel counterweight - for CGEM mounts

Accessories such as cameras, dew caps, tele-extenders or 2" star diagonals affect the balance of your telescope. Counterweights compensate for this imbalance, improving ease of operation and tracking.
You don’t need perfect balance to operate your telescope. In fact, it’s not always possible to achieve perfect balance with fixed-position weights. All you need to do is reduce, or eliminate, swing when R.A. and DEC locks are released. Celestron counterweights help you achieve the desired balance and stability with ease.
