iOptron Mini Tower Pro ????

My CGEM takes way to long to assemble and align for school out reach. I find I'm not doing it anymore and want to change that. I had thought a T Rex or Discmount might be the ticket, but now I am thinking tracking would be a big plus as lines get long and view times kinda short.
I'd like to put a TEC 140 on it and it sounds as though it could handle it weight wise. Only for grab and go or outreach, NO IMAGING.
The OTA, diagonal,dovetail and EP should weigh in at 26 or 27 pounds.
Am I thinking about the right mount, how long is the alignment process for the Mini Tower and is it a proven mount ???
Thanks in advance,

I have been using the MT for 2years now its just remarkable how accurate it is .. the pro i have been using for 12mths and is just not as accurate.
