- LB Counterweight
- Shipping damage
Its a weight. Its heavy and metal and makes your telescope not flop over. Same weight that comes included with the Sirius EG-Q mount. An additional weight is essentially a required purchase with the Sirius EQ-G as mounting even a small telescope will overcome the single 11 LB Counterweight that comes with the mount. I rated it down slightly because mine came with the plastic tightening knob being bashed up. It still works, but for $70 I was disappointed to see some shipping damage. Its not enough damage for me to bother returning it however.
Object performs as expected. It weighs 11 lbs and functions as a weight.
