A thing of beauty is a joy forever. Tired of ugly, rusting cast-iron counterweights? My precision stainless steel counterweights are a pleasure to handle, and match the elegance of your mount.

These weights are made in a production CNC machine shop in the USA. Each weight has a bronze bushing that rides on the counterweight shaft. There is a spring-loaded brass non-rotating plunger between the locking knob and the counterweight shaft to prevent marring of the shaft. When you loosen the knob, the plunger retracts. It wont get in the way when putting the weight on the shaft. All parts are stainless steel or brass (the knob head is plastic, threads are stainless steel).

Three sizes are available for a variety of mounts including the G-11, GM-8, Astro-Physics 900, and 1200. The actual weight varies with the mount's shaft size:

7- lbs. 1" x 6" dia. $75.00 plus shipping

15 lbs. 2" x 6" dia. $87.50 plus shipping

23 lbs. 3" x 6" dia. $99.00 plus shipping

Credit card orders can be placed through my web page. Or, you can contact me by email to arrange payment by check.

Thanks,
Robin
