I supply stainless steel counterweights for the following mounts:

Astro-Physics 900 & 1200

Losmandy G-11, GM-8

Mountain Instruments MI-250*

Williams GT-1 & GT-1HD

Three sizes are available. The actual weight varies with the mount's shaft size:

7-8 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

These weights are made in a CNC production machine shop. 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.

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

*Mountain Instruments mounts require a replacement counterweight shaft that is available from my web site for $80.00 plus shipping.
