I responded on the LXD55 group, but I think I got your use backwards. I did it the other way around, with my LXD55 mount on a CG-5 tripod. It works really well, and the difference is huge.

Which CG-5 mount do you have? The ASGT? Do you have the standard Tripod for it? If I remember correctly, the LXD-55 tripod was an aluminum tripod and as John implied, it's definitely a weak point and would have a hard time with your 6 inch refractor.
