Farpoint 1.5 lb Magnetic Bag Weight - counter weight for dobsonian telescopes
Farpoint Lifting Straps make it easy to install or remove the optical tube assembly from the base of 10 inch dobsonian telescopes. Sold as a pair, these two straps wrap around the OTA and secure with Velcro for a tight fit and the built-in handle provides a stable grip.
Farpoint 1.5 lb Magnetic Bag Weight sticks securely to the steel optical tube assembly of many solid tube Dobsonians and is perfect for making fine balance adjustments.
Often, when many accessories are mounted at one time, counterweights are needed to balance the telescope. Farpoint's Cordura bag weight contains 1.5 pounds of lead shot heat-sealed in plastic. The extra strong Neodymium magnets allow the placement of the weight exactly where it is needed to perfectly balance the Dobsonian.
When an eyepiece is replaced with an eyepiece of a different weight, the magnetic weight bag can slide up or down on the optical tube to restore perfect balance!
