Product Description

This Celestron 12 pound (5.4 kg) counterweight lets you balance heavy heavy accessory loads (such as a photoguide scope, accessory dovetail, mounting rings, and a camera) installed on a Celestron Advanced Series VX computerized go-to telescope. It will also let you balance a heavy optical tube (Celestron or otherwise) and accessories installed on the Celestron VX mount (which comes with only one 12 pound counterweight as standard equipment). A hand-tighten knob holds the counterweight in place on the mount's 0.75" diameter counterweight bar. The counterweight wll also work with the previous generation Celestron CG-5 go-to mount.

Review by:
This is the superior counterweight for AVX and CG5 class mounts. The flat end prevents the mount from wandering on you. Also, the edges have a better radius curve than the classic CG5 weights and feel better in the hand. (Posted on 10/31/2019)
Review by:
This weight works for both the AVX and older CG-5. The flat side works well when you need to counterweight to be very close to the polar axis (the old, round weights tend to rub the electronics case of the CG-5). (Posted on 12/24/2018)
