      Comments about Celestron Telescope Counterweight Extra 11# (for CG-5 Mount):

      I required two of these weights.

      The amazing facts about the purchase from Hay-needle was the lower price than anyone else (Believe me, I checked!) as well as free shiping. The weights arrived just two days after I ordered them and I am delighted with the entire transaction.

      Great going!

      Keep up the good customer service as well!

      I will be back!

          Needed an extra counterweight and received one promptly. The plastic tip on the tightening bolt is a nice touch.

              Customer Q & A

              Q1: What is the diameter of the hole in the counterweight? I have a Konusmotor 130 and I can't seem to find one meant for it.

              A: The diameter of the hole in the counterweight is 3/4".
