Farpoint 16" Meade Lightbridge Counterweight Set - FP310

SKU: FAR-FP310

16-inch LightBridge Counterweights - 3 lb. Set

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. 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.

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