What can I say, it's a counterweight. What did surprise me was the cost of shipping was so reasonable half of what other people were asking or less and it got here really quick. Of course the counterweight works perfectly but there's really no reason to write a review, so this is for BH photo thanks!

I would definitely recommend this.

The Counterweight is great. Does exactly the job it was purchased for. Very satisfied.

I'm not sure I got the right product for my needs.

Its a fine counterweight. Sadly I got it for a sky guider and the post the weight goes on is much smaller than what this weight was designed for. meh, For balancing my heavy telephoto and D750 it is about the right weight. So I'm keeping it and exploring adding some sort of way to keep it from flopping around on the counterweight arm. Fro now I'm using gravity and keeping the right ascension of the equatorial mount almost up and down.

It is 5.5lbs

It is a counterweight that fits my CEM60. It has a good stop screw.

Why's it so heavy?? It must weigh at the least, um, 5 pounds

Having recently purchased the iOptron Extension Bar, I purchased this lighter weight to reduce the total weight on my mount. This lighter weight was all I needed to balance my CEM70 after removing two 20-pound weights. This made my mount very happy. My mount smiles now. :)
