  • Extra counterweights for various Celestron equatorial telescope mounts
  • These counterweights from Celestron have an attractive finish and winged lock knob for easy grip
  • Ideal for astro-imaging applications
  • Extra counterweights for balancing heavy loads
  • Optimize your Celestron equatorial mount's performance

Celestron counterweights are needed any time a heavier load is added to your equatorial telescope mount. If you get a larger or heavier telescope than the one that came with your Celestron EQ mount, you will most likely need an additional counterweight to achieve proper balance. Celestron-brand counterweights are available for the Celestron CG-5, CGEM, and CGE Pro equatorial mounts. These counterweights are good for astrophotography applications with heavy equipment, where additional weight is required to balance the imaging system.
