FarPoint Astro Meade LightBridge Telescope Counterweights 16" 3lb Set (3)
Item No. 781-00098
Eligible for Scope City Rewards at Check-out
Manuf. No. Farpoint FP310
The stock Meade Lightbridge telescope is balanced to accommodate a small eyepiece and red dot finder. Once the user begins to add heavier eyepieces and finders, the telescope becomes very front heavy.
The Farpoint Counterweight Kit adds approximately three pounds to the rear of the telescope in order to accommodate a wider range of front end accessories. the weights are CNC machined from 304 stainless steel for a superior finish and durability.
These weights replace the push or locking screws* on the mirror cell, 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 1.8 lb ring weights (FP315) are available at extra cost to fit the cylindrical weights shown if greater counterweighting is required for your application.
The weights are currently available for the 12" and 16" LightBridge models.
