This version of the Counterweight Set will only work with the CPC-800. For other Celestron 8" SCTs, click here.

Accurate balance is necessary for the best telescope performance. Adding heavy accessories such as 2" eyepieces or cameras to a scope requires the addition of a counterweight set to achieve balance. This weight set, specially designed for Celestron 8" Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes, allows accurate balancing while retaining the stylish look of this advanced telescope!

The complete kit consists of a slide bar on the bottom and a fixed weight on top of the telescope. The top weight is necessary to achieve true dynamic balance, making this weight kit a substantial improvement over any other available systems. (For scope owners who already have a bottom weight set from another manufacturer, the top portion of this kit is available separately - stock # CWGPS8-T.)

Included is one threaded weight for the bottom slidebar and small and large weights for the top bracket. The weights are precision-machined and can be stacked if needed for additional weight.

All necessary hardware and tools for installation are included.

Fits NexStar 8 GPS and most other fork-mounted Celestron 8" Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes.

Includes:

  • Bottom rail and mounting brackets
  • Sliding weight holder with threaded rod
  • 2.5-pound stainless steel bottom counterweight
  • 2-pound stainless steel top counterweight
  • 1-pound stainless steel top counterweight
  • Mounting screws and hex wrenches
