iOptron MiniTower II

I'm looking to get a sturdy alt-az mount for use with a C9.25 SCT (~20lbs) without breaking the bank. Has anyone had experience with the iOptron MiniTower II? This will be strictly for viewing, no AP. I did a search but couldn't find any threads on this. Would appreciate hearing about anyone's experience with this mount.

I have the iOptron Cube Pro, and I really like it. For visual use it is perfect. If the build quality on the MiniTower II is as good as the CubePro (and because of the price difference, it has to be!), it should be really good.

Sorry I can't provide any direct feedback on that.
