Using a bracket was the most versatile for my situation, but an 8" Celestron is about the widest OTA that will fit.
OTOH the bracket vertical centering is adjustable, so have also used this mount with 4 and 5 inch refractors, and my solar scope.

Does not look easy... may not be worth the hassle...

In the end though I bought a used heavy duty field tripod.

I have owned both and (in many ways), IMHO, the NSGPS mount is far superior to the CPC mount.
Maybe in a few years when they come down in price in the used market....
