      Bttteries can leak, batteries can die.

      If you're not using them for power, then it's far safer to simply fill the non-DEC-motor side with some other dead weight (a bag of sand, some lumps of steel or lead).

      If you're *really* serious, you'll install a 3-D counterbalance system, and that can take over the "battery" job.

      have fun
      --dick (who does not do imaging, so there have been no batteries in my scope since April 2002)
