    Comments about Celestron CGEM Counterweight:

    I ordered this counterweight because of the additional guidescope. Otherwise, the original 17lb counterweight is sufficient.

        Expensive but necessary

        By Xavier C.

        from San Marcos, Texas

        About Me Casual/ Recreational

        Verified Buyer

        Pros

        • Matches factory product
        • Solid construction

        Cons

        • Expensive

        Best Uses

        • Astrophotography

        Comments about Celestron CGEM Counterweight:

        If you add photography equipment to your telescope you will need additional counterweights and this matches the one(s) that came with your scope. It's expensive for a chunk of iron, but necessary, and it looks good.

          • Astronomy

          Comments about Celestron CGEM Counterweight:

          It is what it is - a weight. Fits CGEM perfectly. Identical to weight that came with mount. Solved my balance problem after adding a rail and other accessories to my scope.
