Meade SCT tube balance system is greatPros:
Use Just The Weight You N,Easy to Use,Accurate,Strong ConstructionCons: Comments:
Using many accessories piggy back, camera, large eye pieces can cause the motors to work harder to compensate for the added weight. The counterweight balance system is easy to install and use, has 3 different weights. Pick the proper weight(s) and adjust the balance. Motors do not have to struggle and accuracy is better. Nice low profile to the tube, easy to add/remove weight.
