This Losmandy counterweight system is used to balance heavy accessory loads on Celestron and Meade fork-mounted catadioptric telescopes.
It has a dual-channel dovetail adapter that clamps onto either an optional Losmandy D-Series dovetail accessory mounting plate or an optional Vixen-style accessory dovetail that is attached to either the top or underside of the telescope’s optical tube. A 5 inch long threaded stainless steel rod projects from the dovetail adapter. A 2.5 pound counterweight threads onto the rod.
By sliding the dovetail adapter back and forth along the optional dovetail until the optical tube balances, combined with threading the counterweight closer to or further away from the optical tube, almost any accessory load can be balanced to reduce the strain of an unbalanced accessory load on the telescope drive motors.
