Does anyone have an aftermarket handle they use on the top of the EdgeHD? Particularly one that doesn't require a full dovetail and attaches to the screws directly

 

I have a nice workflow where I setup the mount, the scope, counterweights etc. But when moving the scope, the single handle on the bottom left is very off-balance and it leads to some sketchy moments. Particularly when you have the scope only by that handle and need to tighten it into the mount. It tends to want to roll off to one side or the other.

 

I'm going to try moving the handle to the top side and see if that helps

Looks like there aren't screw holes in the top to move the handle. So I'm back to looking for something i can screw into the top
