Yes, but thats about 45-49lbs fully dressed so no extras :) One way to drop some weight is position the scope better on the saddle to eliminate the need for the 10 pound ring weight in the back. Thats a huge savings. If you plan to do that you need to use a double ring finder that mounts on the focuser, not the 11x70 that attaches to the tube ring weight. Hope this helps.. Joe
