iOptron 5kg Counterweight for C70, C60, G45, i45 & C40G
The iOptron 5kg (11 lb.) counterweight uses a brass compression ring to lock the counterweight onto the 28 mm diameter counterweight shaft of several models of iOptron equatorial mounts. Compared to traditional "point contact" locking mechanism via a locking screw and a pin, the compression ring provides a more secure locking method via distributed surface contact.
This 11 pound counterweight is designed for following iOptron mounts:
- iOptron CEM60/CEM60EC
- iEQ45 Pro
It can be used for other mounts having a 28mm diameter counterweight shaft.
