Orion magnetic Counterweight for Dobsonian Telescopes
The counterweight is a ingeniously simple solution for keeping your Dobsonian telescope in balance. No complex installation is needed. Nevertheless, your Dobsonian will always be balanced, no matter if your eyepiece is a heavyweight or if you are using a small Plössl eyepiece with not even 100 grams weight.

You can place the magnetic weight at any place of the Dobsonian telescope and balance the telescope perfectly. If one counterweight is not sufficient, you can also use a second one.

Moving during operation is also not a problem. A foam material cover at the contact surface protects the surface of your telescope tube. The counterweight comes with a well dimensioned handle which allows comfortable handling.

Not only suitable for Dobsonian telescopes!
The tube balance weight attaches to all metal surfaces. Whether it is a round tube or an plane surface, for example a counterweight or a dovetail bar. Thus there is also a versatile tube balancing weight for your equatorial telescope at your disposal. Whether it is a German equatorial mount or a fork-mounted telescope, the tube balancing weight balances the telescope perfectly, thus saving the motors.
