Not having the chance to inspect the Meade and Losmandy counterweights I am looking for advise. Which one is better? Does anyone else make one that I should consider?

The Losmandy are very nice (as are all of their equipment) in that they are 2 dimensional... help to balance RA and DEC. The little suckers jiggle around some though... Either should work wonderfully. I personally have the Meade set as they came with my scope when I bought it, but I have seen both in action. I'd go with whatever ones you can find cheapest/easiest! Hope that helps! Anthony
