Counterweights for mounts

All the counterweights needed to balance the optical tubes on Takahashi equatorial mounts

Proper balancing of the instrument ensures optimal tracking of the equatorial mount without forcing the mechanical and electrical elements of the motorisation. Takahashi offers a range of counterweights adapted to all its equatorial mounts.

Takahashi counterweights are made of cast aluminium. The finishing of each counterweight is done manually. A system combining a screw with an internal metal extension allows an efficient tightening on the counterweight bar of the equatorial mount, without any risk of slipping.
