SKU: ORI-04804

Orion 2.2 lb. Counterweight & Shaft for StarShoot Compact Astro Tracker

If you are doing astrophotography with the Orion StarShoot CAT, then you will want this counterweight and shaft assembly on your side. Using this counterweight with the mount increases the payload capacity from 6.6 lb. to 8.8 lb.!

The weight weighs 2.2 lb. and fits perfectly on the 10" steel shaft, locking in place with a large locking knob. An included retaining screw and washer and the end of the shaft will keep the counterweight from sliding off.

In order to use the counterweight and shaft, you will need the Orion Declination Bracket for StarShoot CAT (sold separately), as the shaft threads onto the bracket.
