Product Details

  • This is an Additional 5 kg (11-pound) counterweight for the iEQ45 German Equatorial Mount. 

    This newly designed 5 kg (11-pound) counterweight (CW) uses a compression ring to lock the CW onto a CW shaft. Comparing to traditional "point contact" locking mechanism via a locking screw and a pin, the compression ring provides more secure locking method through distributed surface contact.

    This 5 kg Counterweight is designed for following the iOptron Mounts:

    • iOptron CEM60/CEM60EC.
    • GEM45/GEM45EC.
    • iEQ45 Pro.
    • iEQ45.
    • It can also be used for other mounts with a 28 mm diameter counterweight shaft.

    Manufacturer's note: The Actual dimension, (except inner diameter,) may be different.

    iOptron 5kg Conterweight

    I purchased this weight to use with my CEM60. Works fine, however my counterweight does not have a compression ring locking system as noted in the item description. I feel that for the price, it should.
