Does anyone know what other tripods can be used to replace the 1" legs of the CubePro? Are anyone of the other Ioptron tripods able to switch with the tripod that is supplied with the CubePro? I am concerned that the CubePro tripod is not stable enough for a 7 or 9lb refractor.Do not know if the CubePro can sit on any other tripod.

Thanks to anyone who can help,because the tripod is my main concern if I was to buy this mount.

I too didn't like the stock tripod and now use a cg5 tripod went to homedepot got some threaded rod and a short piece of PVC pipe so it sits a little higher and it works very good now not to much wiggle now. HTH
