This 1 Kg counterweight allow easier balance of the optical tubes. It can be installed both side, on the front or rear optics of any instrument.
Like all the other elements of the PLUS series, these 1 Kg counterweight are made with high mechanical precision (built with CNC machines from aluminum block) and specially designed to enable you to easily install other mechanical elements such as support rings, plates or dovetail clamps.
The counterweight of 1 kg PLUS is ideal for those users that need to balance the optics. It can be mounted thru a clamp (Optional ) to the support bar Vixen or Losmandy of the optical tube. It can be mounted in both side, on the front side if your telescope is not well balanced and you need more weight or in the back. In addition you can connect more weights, simply screwing between them thru the screws supplied as standard.
The PLUS Counterweight is part of the PLUS (Prima Luce Universal System) which includes many guide rings, support rings, plates, adapters, and dovetail clamps to offer you the maximum freedom to build your mechanical system of support, depending on the application that you want to achieve. Indeed, all the PLUS elements have threaded holes, holes and slots suitable for connecting elements, always with maximum rigidity and comfort. Prima Luce designed many element for this purpose, including the 1kg Counterweight.
Each component of the PLUS system is made of aluminum blocks that are high precision CNC machined. The aluminum is then sandblasted to achieve a very smooth surface finish and is anodized (hard anodizing) to increase the hardness of the material and protect it from oxidation.
