    Description

    Counterweight set 2×8 kg for TTS-160 Panther Mount.

    Easy balancing

    With the azimuth axle being vertical there is only the altitude axle to balance on Track The Stars Mounts. The counterweight can easily be positioned and fixed on the counterweight arms. Just release the altitude clutch and feel the balance and adjust the counterweight position.

    Balancing extra equipment

    If you install a piggyback camera or guide telescope it’s very easy to balance again just by lowering the counterweights. No need for extra tube mounted counterweight as needed on German Equatorial Mounts.
