I will be picking up a Celestron 102 f/5 in the next week or so and thought about getting the iOptron CubePro mount/tripod for it. Any one have any experience with this?

I have been curious about this mount also Eric.. It kind of looks like a poor man's DM. Never touched one, but have been wondering about that and a few others for a mid size refractor. Seems the general desire to discuss mounts is not high on the fun list.

Here is a link to a review of the Optron mini

The mini- is more expensive and more stable than the pro.

There is a brief discussion thread here:
