Balancing in declination is a two-stage operation, because it needs to be balanced in two dimensions. First, balance lengthwise. You do this by moving the OTA forward or back in its rings or moving the dovetail forward or back in the saddle while the scope is horizontal.
Second, balance it laterally. Point it at the pole (home position). Now rotate it in the rings until it doesn't fall off to one side or the other. You can probably guess which accessories are causing the imbalance, so you are rotating the OTA to put those accessories near the centreline.
In the case of a Newtonian, lateral balancing ends up with the focuser pointing either up or down. Up is the easier direction, since there are no obstructions, but it puts the camera load a long distance from the RA axis, requiring more counterweights. Down is easier on the hardware, but you have to be careful to avoid the camera striking the mount. (This is especially difficult on a centre-balanced mount like the CEM60.)
Finally, after doing both the lengthwise and the lateral dec balance, do the RA balance. You do this last, since the dec balance will affect the amount or position of of counterweights.
