Just received my order for an Avalon T-Pod 110 tripod and an adapter to attach my iEQ45 Pro EQ/AZ mount.
First, the tripod is extraordinary. One of the finest pieces of astronomy gear I've ever owned. The machining is impeccable and beautiful. I will start a different thread once I've resolved my problem.
The Avalon iEQ45 adapter works fine for attaching the mount itself. However, my iOptron mini-pier which I need to use so my refractor doesn't hit the legs, doesn't line up properly with the Avalon adapter.
Has anyone figured out how to attach an iOptron mini-pier to an Avalon tripod?
Is there a different mini-pier I could use? All the Avalon mini-piers don't look like they'd work. If they had one with the same hole patterns as the tripod but extended 8", that would be fine. But I can't find one like that.
Need to figure out a combination of mini-pier and adapters to get the tripod to work with my mount.
Advice more than welcome.
