QUestion: should I balance the scope with the hard dew shield and diagonal in place? or without?

After all the less weight you put on your mount the more stable it should be. Plus who wants to lug around another 10lb weight when you don't have to :-p

what about the second question guys?

you can add another weight or slide it down on the gem
...but you still need the rail and rings . eq or not...there are some cost effective options on weights for eq mounts also..(like bar bell weights) you can adjust the tube some ,but it still may be necessary to ad weight.

still haven't had the chance for first light... bad weather in Miami.

Bad weather in Miami may be a good thing right now. It will give you time to get these important issues taken care of before you set it outside and turn it on.
Pretty scope by the way!

Much appreciated all the suggestions. I will for sure need another weight, maybe a 7lbs...
