I have been using the SkyFi + Sky Safari + DM-6 + Planet Tripod + Argo Navis + iPad Mini + TEC-140 combo. I have a 3 amp-hour battery on the top of my DM-6 for cold.weather run time of the SkyFi and Argo Navis. No cord wrap since battery moves with DM-6. I have been thinking about how to rig a bracket for my mini. I have mine in a leather flip cover so I can cover it when I don't want the light. I have red film on the screen. I want to sew on some attachment points on the back of my iPad mini case to snap to a holder on the mount.
I have a Gitzo 5541LS tripod that I use for ultra portable setups with my DM-4. Handles my SV115T just great. Only concern is being knocked over when around crowds doing public viewing. I use the larger rig with the Planet tripod for those situations.

I have been trying to accomplish what you have done with my DM6/SkyWire/iPad set up. I don't seem to be able to get the iPad to communicate with Sky Commander. I am using the supplied Sky Commander RJ11-DB9 cable to connenct the SkyWire but with no success. Any suggestions?

The trial with the 925 CPC was impressive!

I also use my Mini on my Dob with a small table atop a stalk. There the Mini just rests on top of the table.
Can you post a picture of your setup?
