Farpoint 12" Meade Lightbridge Counterweight Set - FP300

SKU: FAR-FP300

12-inch LightBridge Counterweights - 3 lb. Set

These weights replace the push or locking screws on the mirror cell, making them a bolt-on addition. This "core" set properly balances the telescope for use with a large 2-inch eyepiece and a finder scope or Telrad. The stock Meade Lightbridge telescope is balanced to accommodate a small eyepiece and red dot finder. Once the user begins to add heavier eyepieces and finders, the telescope becomes very front heavy.

  • Before using this product, Farpoint recommendeds that the mirror cell springs and knobs be upgraded with a collimation upgrade kit for the LightBridge such as those now offered by Farpoint.
