Anyone have any suggestions for a good quality AZ computerized mount that could be mounted atop my Citerion GoldenPyramid Tripod and will adapt to both Newtonians or SCT's?

I wouldn't get too caught up trying to reuse that tripod. There are some great modern ones. How big a something do you want to mount?

Look at the iOptron cubes.

Initially a 4" reflector, but at some point, no more than a 10" SCT or 10" Newtonian, and be able to do some photography. I've seen some of the pictures of the current mounts, with the tripod and they don't look any better, stability wise than my Golden Pyramid. That thing is rock-solid and i do want to make use of it, if possible. It looks like brand new.

I've seen the iOptron Minitower II or Pro.
