Perfectly adjustable
Because this mounts to the rail on the OTA, it allows precise balancing, by adjusting where along the rail it mounts. Changes the balance from "close" to exact. I wish there was a smaller weight available.

Quality Stuff... I love it
This counterweight and mount are well designed, robust, and made with high-quality materials. I am very pleased with this purchase and I frequently use it on my fork-mounted 8-inch SCT with a variety of scope-mounted accessory configurations. This counterweight works great in conjunction with the other counterweights, mounts, and accessories I have on the scope, and I can achieve perfect balance in all pointing directions with an ever-changing variety of accessories. This particular version of the counterweight mount has a short threaded rod, so I like to use it on the scope's top rail making it less of an eye danger than the counterweight version with the longer threaded rod (which I use on the scope's underside). Additionally, I screw a small plastic ball atop the threaded rod to further alleviate any eye danger. One last thing... I ordered two extra weights that are sometimes necessary for balancing certain accessory configurations.
