So I've picked up an SP-DX for a small EQ mount, which I've always waanted.

However, I've found that it uses a different tripod top than the SP/GP standard that I expected. Not really a big deal, except that it won't fit the Berlebach or Baader tripods or adapters.

I do see that Baader makes an adapter for the Vixen Sphinx, though. Before I go ordering one, though, can someone tell me a) if they'recompatible or b) what the dimensions of the tripod top, mount hole, bolt, etc. for the Sphinx are?

A custom adapter is a possibility, but wanted to see if there was a chance to use a commercial adapter instead of going that route. Trying to keep the number of tripods I lug around to a minimum.

Thanks,

Tony
