EXTRA Counterweight for 365Astronomy PHOTO UNO or PHOTO DUO Counterbalance Systems

If you already own a 365Astronomy PHOTO UNO or PHOTO DUO Counterbalance Upgrade Kit and straggling with balance, you might need to add few more counterweights.

Counterweight installed on the rod of the counterweight system with optional mounting clamp. This would give the ability to install a small telescope with a Vixen-style dovetail bar.

This product consists of:
1 pcs 0.5kg counterweight

To decide how many extra counterweight you might need in addition to the originally supplied, see the load capacities in the below spreadsheet.

We've made some measurements and calculations and came up with the following approximate results:

Counterweight  - Payload distribution
Number of counterweights Total weight of counterweights Payload (usable weight of equipment)
1 c/w 0.5kg appr. 2.7kg
2 c/w 1.0kg appr. 4.5kg
3 c/w 1.5kg appr. 5.6kg
4 c/w 2.0kg appr. 6.8kg

Above measurements were taken by moving the camera platform completely in, so that it touched the mounting block. Maximum payload with a certain counterweight can be achieved only in this position. If the camera platform is further away, less usable payload will result. Always two counterweight bars were used and the counterweights were placed at the very end of the second counterweight bar.

Counterbalance Upgrade Kit installed on Fornax 10 Lightrack Mk II. (Fornax 10 and counterweight system not included, but available separately)
