It's always good to order more than you need. The strategy is called "Minimization of Maximum Regret". Having the small weight there, unused... is meh. Running out of weights in the middle of balancing... and the comet of the century staring you in the face... is Auugh! Tom

Weights are best when pushed up against the scope end of the counterweight bar. This minimizes the moment of inertia. So lots of weights close in are better than fewer weights further out.
When I bought my AP mount, they told me the weights required for the OTAs that I owned. Can 10micron help you out?
