This high-leverage design needs only half the weight of ordinary counterweights to properly balance the same amount of photo equipment. A low profile dovetail bar attaches to the existing accessory holes in the underside of the front and rear cells of the scope. The dovetail bar can be left in place permanently and will not interfere with putting the scope in a carrying case. A no-tool quick release bracket attaches a 5" threaded counterweight shaft at right angles to the dovetail bar and allows the rod to be positioned anywhere along the length of the optical tube. A 2.5 lb. counterweight threads onto the rod and can be positioned up and down on rod to quickly balance any accessory load (closer to the optical tube provides less leverage, balancing lighter loads; further away from the tube provides more leverage, allowing heavier accessory loads to be balanced).
Includes bar, mounting kit, and 2.5 pound weight. Also includes extra 5 pound weight.
