You all helped me out greatly with finding a tripod for my CEM40 I bought used off ebay!

I now need to find a counterweight shaft option.

I ordered one for the skytracker pro thinking, "surly they all use the same size and threading..." they do not.

Nothing comes up on the ioptron website, google etc. 

Are there any alternative options for replacing the CW shaft?

email iOptron.  They probably have one as a spare part.

I see they have two lengths, I have two short ones on my EW45PRO, looks the same.  Ioptron should be able to help
