Farpoint Tube balance weight system for 12" Dobsonians by GSO, ICS, Meade and similar
... 1.3 kgs balance weights for the main mirror cell to compensate for heavier front accessories

Farpoint FP300 Ausgleichsgewichte für Meade GSO ICS Dobsons

A solution for top-heavy Dobsonians! The standard 12" Dobsonians by Meade, GSO, ICS and similar are designed for use with normal accessories like 1.25" eyepieces. As soon as heavier accessories like additional viewfinders, 2" WA eyepieces, binoviewers are used, the telescope becomes top-heavy. Increasing the altitude friction's tension is often an unsatisfying solution because the telescope does not run very smooth any more.

The Farpoint balance weight system is a brainy problem solver:
Replace the counter screws at the main mirror cell by the three supplied screw and you get 1.3 kgs additional weight on the telescope's back side. Now your Dobs is much better balanced.
