So i've just bought myself a Celestron HD pro wedge for my CPC 800.

1. Do i need to buy a counterbalance kit to compensate for my DSLR camera? (scope doesnt seem to move much wherever i put it, maybe just tight between forks?)

2. Read in an old post on here that i may have to replace azimuth nylon bearings with steel ones, is this really necessary?
