Celestron Counterweight for CGE Pro Telescopes (22lb)
Make sure that your observation of the night sky is clear and accurate with the 22 lb. Counterweight from Celestron! Designed for efficiency and convenience, the telescope accessory balances the overall mass of a telescope’s optical tube working in conjunction with Celestron CGE Pro or CGEM DX equatorial mounts.
The Counterweight is especially effective in off-setting the weight added to your telescope by such heavy items as lens shades and tele-extenders. This balancing process also enables you to increase the weight of visual-side accessories on your telescope, including cameras and refractors, while still maintaining exquisite balance.
Because the Counterweight restores overall balance, it makes use of your telescope simple and more efficient; the balancing process makes handling your equipment easier and improves tracking accuracy. The unit also features a hand-tightened knob which holds it in place on the mount’s counterweight bar.
Perfect balance isn’t required to properly operate your telescope. As a matter of fact, flawless balance is not always possible when using fixed-position weights. But with Celestron’s Counterweight, you can achieve a desired balance and seriously reduce both shaking and swinging even when locks are released.
The Celestron 22 lb. Counterweight for CGE Mount is designed to help balance extra-heavy accessory loads (such as a large photoguide refractor, accessory dovetail, mounting rings, and a camera) on a Celestron telescope mounted on the Celestron CGE Pro or CGEM DX equatorial mounts. It will also let you install and balance a heavy non-Celestron scope on a Celestron CGE Pro or CGEM DX mount (which come with only one 22 pound counterweight as standard equipment when a mount is bought alone).
Featuring all the elements you need to protect your equipment and enrich your astronomical observations, the Celestron 22 lb. Counterweight is the ideal addition to your stargazing set-up!
