Hello,

As suggested already, it is mass X distance from the pivot points. The main thing to remember is the rough ratio, 1kg on the focuser is 6.5kg on the base sort of thing. That actual ratio is dependent on a large range of factors based on your scope.

You'll end up needing a lot of separate weights if you work it at each optical setup weight. So think about variable weight setups like a sliding weight, chains and hooks on the base etc. You should be able to mark off chains links or slide points for each ep later to make setting up easier.
