Celestron 11-lb. Counterweight 94186 for CG-5 Mount
You enjoy using your Celestron telescope, but accessories such as cameras, dew shields, Tele-Extenders and 2" diagonals will affect the balance of your Celestron telescope system. Counterweights restore proper balance, increasing ease in handling and improved tracking accuracy. But don't just go adding any old thing to even out the load when you can use genuine Celestron parts.
Of course, you don’t need perfect balance to operate your telescope. In fact, it’s not always possible to achieve perfect balance with fixed-position weights. All you need to do is reduce, or eliminate, swing when R.A. and DEC locks are released. No one wants their telescope to get loose from them! Unexpected swing could cause damage to your accessories. Genuine Celestron counterweights help you achieve the desired balance and stability for your Celestron mount with ease.
The Celestron 11-lb. Counterweight for CG-5 Mount is an additional 11 lb. machined weight for balancing heavier loads mounted on the Celestron CGE equatorial mount. It slides perfectly over the declination shaft and tightens by hand using the provided knob.
