Farpoint Counterweight Set – 12 Inch LightBridge
Farpoint Counterweight Set – 12 Inch LightBridge replace the push or locking screws on the mirror cell, making them a bolt-on addition for proper balancing. Machined from stainless steel, this set includes three 1-lb. counterweights for a 12″ LightBridge.
The stock Meade Lightbridge telescope is balanced to accommodate a small eyepiece and red dot finder. Once heavier eyepieces and finders are added, the telescope becomes very front heavy. This “core” counterweight set properly balances the telescope for use with a large 2-inch eyepiece and a finder scope or Telrad.
