I've mounted a new scope I have...Plane Wave 12.5. I have the scope as far forward as I want in the saddle (might be able to move it another 2" ahead). Right now I have 110lbs of CW and it still isn't perfectly balanced (probably need another 10lbs.
Is having 110lbs of CW okay? The scope with the imaging train is probably 80lbs?
