Farpoint Astronomical Research introduces a basic counterweight set for the 12-inch Meade LightBridge telescopes. The "core set¯ consists of three 1 lb. weights that attach to the rear of the mirror cell. These weights replace the ¯push¯ or locking screws, making them a bolt-on addition.* This "core set¯ properly balances the telescope for use with a large 2-inch eyepiece and a finder scope or Telrad.
Additional clamp-on ring weights that work in conjunction with this set will be available soon. The additional weights will allow for the balancing of larger top-end loads (i.e., eyepiece + Telrad + finder scope). *Before using this product, we recommended that the mirror cell springs be upgraded with the ¯Bob¯s Knobs¯ collimation thumbscrew kit.
