Orion 11 Pound Counterweight - Atlas - Sirius


SKU: 09863
Manufacturer: Orion Telescopes and Binoculars
Weight: 13.00 lbs


This 11-pound counterweight fits the Orion Atlas EQ-G and Sirius EQ-G GoTo equatorial mounts that feature a rather unique 18 mm counterweight shaft.  It will not fit Orion Skyview Pro, Celestron Advanced VX, or Celestron CG5 mounts, which all feature 20 mm counterweigh shafts.

  • Helps balance especially heavy telescopes and instruments on the Atlas EQ-G or Sirius EQ-G equatorial mounts
  • Ideal for balancing heavy astrophotography gear
  • Features a nylon-tipped, tri-lobe lock knob for easy grip - even while wearing gloves in the field!
  • Optimize the balance of your Atlas or Sirius EQ-G telescope mount for smooth and accurate tracking, panning, and slow-motion position adjustments

For heavier telescopes and astrophotographic setups, an extra counterweight or two may be needed. These counterweights have an attractive finish and tri-lobe lock knob for easy grip. The 11-lb. counterweight fits the Atlas EQ-G and Sirius EQ-G GoTo mounts.
