Product Highlights
  • For 10" LX90 & LX200 Scopes

The Meade #1402 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 #1402 Tube Balance Weight System (for Heavy Eyepieces & Accessories):

      Easy to install, rail properly sized. The fit of the weights to rail was a bit tight. But a little lube and all was well. A very good idea for limiting drag on the gears when using cameras, etc on the back of scope.
