Mounting GM-8 Control Board
      #4543956 - 04/25/11 08:18 PM

I have a new Losmandy GM-8. Because I like wood tripods so much, I bought an Astro-Physics tripod and an adapter from AP to make the GM-8 fit the tripod. It works great!

Now I see that there is not a place to mount the control board for the GM-8.

I suspect that there would have been a place if I had gotten the GM-8 tripod. Has anyone else encountered this issue and developed a work around? The only solution that I've thought of, so far, is to mount the board on one of the wide tripod legs using velcro. I'd rather not do that.

Mike
