To properly balance heavier telescopes and astrophotography setups on the Atlas Pro AZ/EQ-G Mount, an extra counterweight or two may be needed. Balanced payloads ensure smooth tracking and slewing, and help to optimize motorized functions such as computerized GoTo pointing.

This 11lb. counterweight has a 1" center bore to fit the 1" (25mm) counterweighht shaft of the Orion Atlas Pro AZ/EQ-G Mount. It is also compatible with the Orion Counterweight Shaft Upgrade for Atlas EQ-G Mount, the Skywatcher AZ-EQ6, and any other mount with a 1" shaft. The counterweight has an attractive powder-coat finish and a nylon-tipped lock knob which will not mar the counterweight shaft. The tri-lobe lock knob is easy to tighten and loosen, even while wearing gloves.
