Ascend – Mount Balancing Accessory for A200 and L-Series Mounts
The Ascend – Balancing Accessory for Planewave A200 Equatorial Mount
Now one person can easily balance a CDK on the L-Series mounts using the Ascend accessory. The Ascend can attach to either the front or rear of the #200919 dovetail clamp and precisely slide the CDK forward or back for accurate balance. Ascend uses a long pushrod to safely balance in the mount’s declination/altitude axis with the turn of a bolt.
