How far out of balance is too much for the M Uno? I have the following setup but it still seems to be about 20 grams too heavy on the bottom. Without the cabling installed it was just about perfect balance though.

The M-uno can manage without problems a certain amount of unbalancement. Let’s say that up to 1 / 2 kg there should be not issues. Obviously the more the unbalancement, the worse the behaviour in guiding tracking. This may change on depending on the focal length and other relevant setup specs. To check this just perform a calibration or analyze a PHD2 log file. So 20 grams can be considered an irrilevant unbalancement weight for the mount performance. Best regards
