Mach 1 counterweight

Hi,

I have a question about counterweights:
I tested last night my LX200R10" + AO7 + ST8XME on the Mach1.

I was short in counterweights: I use the shorter optional shaft and the
reduced offset distance does not give enought moment of inertia to
balance the OTA +++

I realised this morning that I could screw the normal shaft to the end
of the optional shaft and that addaitional offset weight would give me
a good balance.

Has anyone already done it? Any counter indications? Or does Astro-
Physics sell a shaft extension for taht short optional shaft?

Thanks

Jean-Yves
