I have the Ioptron CEM25EC for my Meade LX65 8" f/10 ACF OTA and it works really, really well. With my whole setup I am just above 50% of the max payload, so that's okay.
But the provided counterweight of 4.7 kg is not enough so added a 1.25 kg dumbbell weight (long live ducttape ) and that was just enough.
But now with my new Zwo ASI294MC Pro it's really on the limit: the counterweight is really on the end of the bar with maybe a centimeter to spare.
I did find info here on NC about this already but still this question.
So, what is wisdom: do I get 2 x 1 kg or 1 x 2 kg extra? (and remove the ducttaped 1.25 kg ofcourse). And what is the best way to distribute the counterweights: the heaviest at the beginning of the bar and then balancing with the lightest one or the other way around?
Thanks in advance
