Product Highlights
  • For 8" LX90 & LX200 Scopes

The Meade #1401 Tube Balance Weight System permits the balance of heavy or heavily-leveraged accessories attached to the eyepiece end of your telescope.  A low profile bar attaches to the underside of the front and rear cells of the telescope-and can be permanently left in place, even if you're not using heavy accessories.  Three sliding weights (1, 2, and 3 lb) slide onto the bar, alone or in any combination, to precisely balance photo accessories and heavy visual accessories.

Weights lock in place on bar with thumbscrews
Safety thumbscrews at ends of bar prevent weights from falling & allow easy removal
No tools required
Additional 2 lb counterweight available for use with very heavy cameras/accessories

        Comments about Meade #1401 Tube Balance Weight System (for Heavy Eyepieces & Accessories):

        Great product. I've been using my LX200 without the counter weights, and found that the motor started to strain with the heavy DSLR. Once attached, the LX200 slewed as if there wasn't anything attached.
