Celestron Extra #11 Counterweight for CG-5 Mount

The Celestron Extra #11 Counterweight for CG-5 Mount is an additional 11 pound counterweight for the Celestron CG-5 equatorial telescope mount. It restores balance to your telescope.

Balance and Stability

This Celestron counterweight is there to help you easily find balance and stability for your telescope. Accessories such as cameras, lens shades, tele-extenders and the 2" diagonal affect the balance of Schmidt Cassegrain telescopes. It's not always possible for fixed position weights to provide perfect balance, but they can minimize or eliminate swing when R.A. and DEC locks are released. This counterweight will restore balance for easier handling and improved tracking accuracy.

Design and Construction

This is an 11 lb counterweight for the CG-5 mount - get one or two extra weights for heavier telescopes and astrophotographic setups. It's made with an attractive finish and an easily adjusted tri-lobe lock knob to provide a better grip.
