I'm considering making stainless steel counterweights for Takahashi mounts, and I'd like to find out how much interest there is. I currently make weights for Astro-Physics, Mountain Instruments, and Losmandy mounts. You can check the quality on my web site.
If you are interested, please let me know what mount you have and what size weights you would like. I'm considering 5" dia. in the following sizes:
1" = 5.5 lbs.
1.5" = 8.2 lbs.
2.75" = 15 lbs.
3.5" = 19 lbs.
Also let me know if there are other sizes you would prefer.
