Would anyone know of a vendor who sells tripod or pier adapters for the Tak EM-10 Temma mount? Specifically I would like to adapt it to my CGE tripod. I do have an LXD55 tripod too.

Anyone ever adapted their EM-10 to a different manufacturer tripod? :help:

Thanks!!!

The EM10 is almost identical to the Atlas. You just need that post to move a smidge. The other thing to know is that the thread going into the mount is an odd one, neither metric nor SAE. It's a a BSW 1/2" bolt. If you can't find it let me know. I may still have some or at least the vendor info.

Hi Craig,

I was wondering how you mounted it to the TSS tripod. Is the fit loose or sloppy on the atlas adapter? A new post hole could be placed anywhere I guess.

Thanks

With a new post it was a perfect match.
