I Am So Glad I Bought American

Everything is so beautifully machined and thought out.

Expensive, and worth every penny.

Obviously, the ScopeRollers are my manufacture.

While balancing the scope on the mount last night, I discovered the 11 pound counterweight (that big donut on the shaft on the left) is not enough for the weight of the telescope.  I sold an 8 pound Losmandy counterweight a few months back to reduce garage clutter.  I used to use that on my older Losmandy GM8 mount with the 8" telescope, but I forgot that was why I had it.  I am ordering another 11 pound counterweight.  Probably more than I need but I can just move it up the counterweight shaft if it is too much.
