About this product

Model:  sw_neq6_cweight_ext_20858
Part Number:  20858

This is the stainless steel counterweight bar extension supplied as standard with Sky-watcher NEQ6 mounts. 

Enables you to balance telescopes up to 10" on an EQ6 mount without excessive counterbalance weight. 

The polished shaft screws onto the existing counterweight shaft extending it's length 18.5 cm (7.3"). The extension is 18mm in diameter with an M12 thread.

Note: This will not fit the earlier Sky-Watcher 'EQ6' counterweight shaft.  

Note: This might fit HEQ5 mounts but only newer ones, please check the diameter and thread dimensions above to see if it matches your mount.

Having brought all my equipment to a dark sky site in France, I realised I'd left the extension bar behind. Easily sorted after a helpful email response. No problem with delivery abroad.

Very simple. M12 thread. Fits Ayo mounts too.

Q1. Will this fit a HEQ5 mount?

It won't fit older HEQ5 mounts but will fit some newer models. Check the diameter of your existing shaft and if it's 18mm and the thread on the end is M12 then it should work.
