Questions & Answers

Product Questions

Just how do you determine a "rough" balance when all the components are rigidly attached? I can see the benefit of the counterweight, but see no way to actually determine when the system is in balance. Seems like it will be hard to determine where the counterweight should be on the shaft. Thanks!
So how exactly does the iOptron Skytracker counterweight system (item # IO3311) work? How heavy or long of a telephoto lens on a DSLR do you recommend using it for? And how exactly do you balance the camera/lens with it and the counterweight? Does it come w/ direction for use? Thanks.
