Hi!
Does anyone have any experience regarding difference in stability and sturdiness of Literoc 1.75" tripod vs skywatcher or celestron 1.75" tripod. Just by the looks I can't tell much of a difference and Ioptron claims for improved stability.

Based on my own experience, get the tripod that comes with the mount, because they are not interchangeable like camera tripods. I have a Celestron 2" tripod which is incredibly sturdy and has a fantastic accessory tray, but nothing to put on it except a Star Adventurer. Current plan is to make an adapter plate so at least the Star Adventurer can be in the middle instead of one of the 3 corners.

They do exist and look exactly like skywatcher's tripod.
