    How to Balance your Scopes RA Axis

    Start with your scope in polar position. Lock Declination axis.

    Rotate the RA Axis so that the counterweight shaft is horizontal.

    Support the weight of the OTA whilst sliding counterweights along the shaft until it counterbalances the OTA.

    Lock off the counterweights.

    At this point you should be able to rotate the RA axis with the clutch undone and the scope will stay where you leave it.

    For correct Declination balance, you may need to move the tube forward or backwards in the rings.

    If further balancing is required in Declination we suggest the Losmandy DVWS system
