I ordered the weight belt :

and wrap it around the microfocuser.

Have to do this when front side of the scope is heavier than the EP side. The Meade weight won't work since it will help front side when tilted passing the center vertical axis of the fork.

Otherwise I just need to use the meade balance weights.
