I use this https://www.meade.com/tube-balance-w...tml#additional

on my Lightbridge 16” in addition the the Farpoint weights. I found that when I add a Paracorr with heavy eyepieces I needed some sort of variable weight system. Works well with just one weight. I mounted it on top of the lower tube assembly and slightly on the opposit side of the eyepiece to offset any lateral out of balance that would put more weight on one altitude bearing than the other.
