Farpoint 1.5 lb Magnetic Bag Weight

Farpoint 1.5 lb Magnetic Bag Weight sticks securely to the steel optical tube assembly of many solid tube Dobsonians and is perfect for making fine balance adjustments.

Often, when many accessories are mounted at one time, counterweights are needed to balance the telescope. Farpoint's Cordura bag weight contains 1.5 pounds of lead shot heat-sealed in plastic. The extra strong Neodymium magnets allow the placement of the weight exactly where it is needed to perfectly balance the Dobsonian.

When an eyepiece is replaced with an eyepiece of a different weight, the magnetic weight bag can slide up or down on the optical tube to restore perfect balance!

Good idea, poor execution

First, the good. The amount of weight is appropriate for the task.

What is poorly executed is the assembly/construction of the bag. There are three magnets sewn into the bag, each designed to be in their own pocket, that adhere to the metal telescope tube. The problem is that two of the pockets the magnets are fitted into are missing the stitches along the edge shared by two of the magnet pockets. Because of the missing stitches, two of the three magnets are consistently magnetically connected to each other, and this causes the bag to be unable to conform to the curvature of a telescope tube, as designed.

In short, mine is defective. I have not tried to get it replaced yet; I definitely should.

Hello R.,

We are very sorry about this manufacturing defect and can assure you the missing stitches problem has been addressed. We have shipped you a replacement. Please kindly return the defective weight bag with the pre-paid label we have emailed you.

Thank you so much!
