Re: Counterweights...How Much Is Too Much Too Balance? AP1100GTO


Just within the past week I added another 18 lb counterweight to my Mach1.  That allowed me to shove most of the weight to the top of the shaft, using a 10 lb to set the fine balance.  Scope is a TEC140ED with cameras.  To my great surprise, it's made a significant difference in PE.  My mount still doesn't meet the original spec, but whereas 20 p-to-p was typical before, now it's down to 11 p-to-p.
