Losmandy counterweight query
      #5641154 - 01/24/13 05:54 PM

Does anyone know whether any readily-available counterweights are compatible with the Losmandy G11, i.e. for mounts with the same shaft diameter?

I would like to obtain another 5-10kg due to the acquisition of a new 'scope, but have experienced long waits (no pun intended ) for Losmandy equipment in the UK.

Apologies if this has been covered before, as I'm sure it must. I did spend some time searching.

Thanks and regards,

Thanks, Terry. That's an option - I see they ship internationally.

Regards,

The counterweights for the CGE, CGE Pro and CGEM DX all fit the same shaft diameter as the Losmandy G11. I had a G11, CGE and CGEM DX all at the same time and all counterweights were interchangeable - all fitting a 1.25" diameter counterweight shaft. The CGEM DX counterweights are 22lbs (10kg)
