If the finder-scope is placed directly over the fulcrum, then there might be no balancing issues whatsoever.

Ideally, wouldn't you want the finder scope directly opposite the altitude pivot point (the side facing the camera)?  Where it is in the image will make it turn turtle once the altitude gets high enough, unless you crank down on the friction knob.

That's simply a mock-up, and per Tiny Clanger's description.  Later, they then referred to this image of their own kit...

I have no idea, as I don't have that kit, nor a 9x50 RACI.  Does that look better?
