Inertial Mass Proportional to Weight

UPS guy seemed to think so. Measured weight is 7 pounds 13 and a half ounces, or 3557 grams, with knob and plastic liner. Moves an EQ5 counterweight away from the inner end stop for a lightweight OTA. OEM quality, appeals to gravity.

Fits my HEQ-5 Perfectly

I have a small scope and light setup overall, so I wanted something a bit smaller than the 11 lb counterweights that came with my HEQ-5. This works perfectly and since it's smaller, the weight sits lower on the counterweight rod rather than needing to be right where the Altitude Adjustment T-bolt sits while I polar align.

This counterbalance weight is high quality. It fit perfectly on my EQ Mount and balanced out my Newtonian Reflector telescope.

The B&H website is easy to navigate and the counterweight arrived much sooner than expected, exactly as advertised. Appreciate the service and availability in these trying times.

Really loving the counterweights, easy handling, nice rubber coating inside the hole, the perfect item for my mount and payload.

It's a counterweight, not much to add. Works as expected. I will say B&H was very helpful getting this to me after I mistakenly entered an incorrect shipping address.
