Need some advisable pointers. I need to get some weights for my LXD55 for a slightly oversized optical tube. I have one 9.8lbs.weight currently. It is not enough for the 32lbs. or so optical tube. Before I buy weights I do not need is there any Rule of Thumb, or optical tube to weight ratio? I have looked online for any info, but no luck. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

You probably need at least about 30 lbs of weight! I have a SN10 on the same mount and use three 10 lbs weights. Got to tell you though...This mount really suffers under that load if you don't balance it carefully. Not recommended for imaging either. Good luck!
