Mounting Rail System for
Counterweights and Accessories

These universal rails are mounted on the top or bottom
of the OTA for holding counterweights, guide scopes,
cameras and other accessories. Black hardcoat anodized
aluminum rails are drilled and ready to mount on your
scope with the supplied stainless steel hardware. Allen
wrench included.

Accessories and counterweights attach to the rails with
cars that slide to any position on the rail and grip firmly
when tightened. The cars can be removed out the ends
of the rails for quick mounting and dismounting.

Cylindrical counterweights can be mounted on end or side
mounted. When side mounted, the weight can be centered
or mounted off axis for balancing in the 'third dimension.'
Counterweights can also be joined end to end. No-tools
hardware for all mounting possibilities is included in the
CWK2 Balance Kit.

The 1 lb Threaded Adjustable Counterweights are threaded
all the way through and can be adjusted up and down the
extension rod for balancing in the 'second dimension.'

The #CWD2 and #CWD3 Dumbell Mounting Kits allow
extended and close mounting of #CW25 and 2.5 lb dumbell
weights that have standard 1" holes, such as Cap brand.
Cap brand 2.5" dumbell weights are about 5" in diameter
and 1/2" thick, with a 1" center hole. Dumbell weight not
included with the mounting kits.
