Hello

I cannot balance in RA this configuration which is less than 15 kg
The mount is positioned on the B1 balance configuration





Thanks for your help

Have you considered mounting the refractor on a dual dec clamp? It would at least reduce the need for so many CWs...and might help with overall balancing.

Hello
A priori balancing in DEC should go
On the other hand, impossible to balance in RA, the brake does not manage to retain the whole
The set of instruments and accessories must be less than 17 kg
On the counterweight bar I have 4 weights of 1.4 kg and on the small bar I have 0.55 kg
I am thinking of making a longer bar to add weight, is that possible?
thank you for your help

How much it is the unbalacing amount on the RA axis?

Of course you can make a longer bar in order to add weight and find your fine balancing but, as other users already suggested, another solution could be to place the refractor in the bottom side of the DEC arm in Dual Dec configuration?.

In this way you could at the same time reduce the overall and the use of counterweights.

My M-Uno dates from 2017, how do you carry out the assembly you recommend?
