  • Astro-Physics Washerless Safety-Stop for 1.875" Diameter Counterweight Shafts

    This handy one-piece, washerless safety stop is machined from a solid piece of aluminum and anodized black. It fits in the end of all of the current style 1.875" diameter counterweight shafts: the 19.5"- (M12601-D), 14"- (M9404-A) and 10.7"- (M1053-A), as well as the counterweight shaft extension (M12675). It also fits into your mount's Declination Axis itself for storage and transport. The Safety Stop's large threads and washerless, one-piece design make it a pleasure to use, especially in the field. It screws into the shaft-end of the declination axis for storage and transport, providing both protection for your mount and a place where it won't get lost! Because it will turn, be careful if using the Safety Stop as a handle when lifting your Dec. axis. Astro-Physics Product Number: M12676

    It works...

    Well my experience with OPT was perfect. With regard to the AP safety stop it does exactly what it should do. However, it's ridiculous that the counterweight shaft doesn't come with it.
