CPC 11 -- Recommendations on counterweight system.
      #5639256 - 01/23/13 05:10 PM

I have a CPC 11 and with my larger 2" system and Ethos eyepieces, my vertical tracking is not working....Anyone recommend the most appropriate counterweight system for this model telescope? (CPC 11 is a fork motor mount).

Losmandy and ADM both make a system. I would contact Astronomics -- they can provide what's needed. I use the Losmandy and it works fine. Also if you don'y have a dew shield that can help with balance when you run heavier accessories on the back end.
