    Star Adventurer Counterweight Kit is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Necessary for heavier cameras and lenses This accessory is needed if using longer lenses or heavy pro camera bodies to allow proper balancing of the camera assembly on the mount.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Right weight A great weight, very solid. Not too heavy, not too light.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Could've Almost Made This Myself This is a pricey deadweight on a stick, but it does exactly as advertised, allowing simple, adjustable counterweight control - in my case, to compensate for the Canon 7D attached to the end of my Celestron telescope.� If I had access to some pig iron or some old pulleys I probably could have fashioned an ugly facsimile to slide along a 3/8" screw thread but alas, I couldn't find any alternatives so I bought this instead.� It loses a point for price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from You really need this accessory with the Star Adventurer. I found that I needed the counterweight once I mounted a DSLR with a lens. Would also need it for binos or a small OTA. With it, the Star Adventurer tracks very well.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Weight could be segmented to smaller weights Instead of having one big weight, probably could be divided in half for some applications. Careful with the locking knob, make it is tight.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Counterweight for Star Adventurer Used this during the Great American Eclipse. Good counterweight to allow the Polar motor to turn effortlessly.
