Some are better at it than I am, but I was never able to get side-by-side balanced well enough for me.  I found a longer dove tail with the guide scope mounted under worked really well.  It's a much cheaper config too.  You just need a long bar...long enough to make sure the guide camera doesn'tclip the mount.
