Meade Counterweight Rail Adapter

#MCRA attaches to Meade style counterweight rails to provide mounting
points for counterweights and accessories. The Meade counterweight rails
are a common factory accessory for SCTs and are standard with the LX600
series scopes.

The aluminum block has a thumbscrew for locking to the rail and has two
threaded holes with 1/4-20 and 5/16-18 threads. #SC44 and #SC42 threaded
rods provides mounting points for ScopeStuff 1 and 2 pound counterweights
and other 1/4-20 threaded accessories. The #SC54 rod allows the Meade
counterweights to be mounted away from the rail for extended balance
options.

#MCRA is black powder coated aluminum, hardware and threaded rods are
stainless steel. CWA1 and CWA2 counterweights are black powder coated
steel. #RDPQ (below) attaches to the MRCA block for mounting Orion/Synta/
Vixen type finder accessories.
