Review by:
I figure that counterweights have pretty easy roles to fill. They need only fit well on the shaft for which their constructed, and they need to respond as expected to the effects of gravity. This iOptron counterweight does both of these things as expected. When I added a Orion 50mm guide scope to my grab and go WO Z61 setup the single counterweight included with the Skyguider Pro wasnt quite enough so I ordered this secondary 3lb counterweight to assist and it does trick!
