I have a new Losmandy GM-8. Because I like wood tripods so much, I bought an Astro-Physics tripod and an adapter from AP to make the GM-8 fit the tripod. It works great!

Now I see that there is not a place to mount the control board for the GM-8. :bawling:

I suspect that there would have been a place if I had gotten the GM-8 tripod. Has anyone else encountered this issue and developed a work around? The only solution that I've thought of, so far, is to mount the board on one of the wide tripod legs using velcro. I'd rather not do that.
