Mine (Nexstar 8SE)mounts so that there's only about a half inch of dove tail past the back side of the arm. Seems like it's mounted way far forward but the spot the scope balances on is a little over 5 inches from the back of the scope. I mount that spot at the middle of the arm right at the index marks. This would be correct right?
Where does your scope balance out?

If you're talking about an original 8SE Alt/Az mount, you are correct.

In case you didn't see this topic previously, you can search for "Back Heavy" vis a vis GoTo Approach in the Nexstar forum.
Since that discussion, I implemented a wedge design. That means a second review of just "what balances where"....which remains to be done while I get proficient with the new alignment procedure :-)
