Binoviewer and counterweight on NS11 ?

Is it necessary to use a counterweight if I use a Denkmeier binoviewer on a NS11 ?

While the N11 will handle the load without counterweights it is not recommended. I understand this places considerable strain on the gears that control your ALT movement.

I have the same set-up and use the complete (top & bottom) counterweight set.
