Vixen 8.1 Lb. SX Counterweight for Vixen Equatorial Mounts
Vixen 2579 SX Counterweight - 8.1 lbs.
Do you own a Vixen Mount that needs to put on a little weight to counterbalance added accessories like larger eyepieces, diagonals, imaging equipment or more? The check into the Vixen 2579 Counterweight.
Made of machined steel, this 8.1 lb. (3.67 kg) counterweight will fit anything with a 3/4" (19mm) counterweight shaft. The bore widens at the bottom to allow you to slip approximately half the weight over the safety retaining screw, maximizing the useful range while maintaining maximum stability. Compatible with most past-production Vixen German Equatorial mounts.
