Exactly! Small mounts cannot internalize the location of their declination motor housing so this creates an imbalance issue the fact that they are small structures to begin with enhances the impact. A suggestion at balancing, applicable to Newtonian scopes, is to rotate the tube so that the focuser/imaging camera and the guide-scope/guide-camera are at the bottom centred along the longitudinal axis of the tube...the "sweet spot" may be with the focuser closer to the axis than the finder scope yet both straddling it on either side.
