can I always leave my clutches tightened down and just use the release lever for fine balance.
Yes, for RA balance start out with mount in Park3. Release the lever, move the mount to horizontal, do your balance, move it back to Park3 and lock the lever.

I have the 1100 on order with absolute encoders. If I only want to do fine balance and only do it from Park position 3 can I always leave my clutches tightened dow and just use the release lever for fine balance. I would never need to move the mount except under software control.
I have always loaded and unloaded my scopes when the mount is in park position 3.
