For heavier telescopes and those used with heavier accessories, an extra counterweight or two may be needed to provide proper balance. Balancing an equatorial mount is important for smooth motion in both axes and accurate manual or electronic tracking. The Orion 5.5-lb. Counterweight for EQ-13 Equatorial Mount is designed to fit the 14mm-diameter counterweight shaft of the EQ-13 mount. It is a steel cylinder weight that has a black powdercoat finish. It features a large lock knob that is easy to grip even with gloves on.
