The stock Meade Lightbridge® telescope is balanced to accommodate a small eyepiece and red dot finder. Once the user begins to add heavier eyepieces and finders, the telescope becomes very front heavy.
These weights replace the push or locking screws* on the mirror cell, making them a bolt-on addition. This "core" set properly balances the telescope for use with a large 2-inch eyepiece and a finder scope or Telrad.
* Before using this product, we recommended that the mirror cell springs and knobs be upgraded with a collimation upgrade kit for the LightBridge such as those now offered by Farpoint.
