Agreed tabletop may work. Still the reason I reccomend goto is that in Light polluted skies a push to system is harder to use as other than very bright objects it will be hard to find things. A goto you can use a few bright stars to align and then your good to go. With an app like skysafari you can work out what is visible from your balcony.

see my balcony setup
Evolution mount with Wo80 in this photo but have used C8 (see my best Juipiter taken from here), Mak0.sutov Etx125 ota , C6, Mak 180. The balcony is very small but I can stand inside the door and use. Not ideal but it works.
