Product QuestionsWill the "Tri-pier Adapter for Takahashi (EM-200), SkyWatcher (HEQ5/EQ6/NEQ6/AZEQ6), Celestron (CGEM/CGEM-DX), Orion Atlas (EQ-G/AZEQ-G)" work with the new Celestron CGX Mount?Hi, i have the cem60 mount and currently use the tripod legs that came with it. I would like to know how much more stable would it be using the tri pier. Currently i experience a good deal of shake with light winds and am trying to find a way to stabilize my setup better.Question by: Eric E on Mar 24, 2016 12:07:00 PMThe TriPier will give you a huge upgrade in stability. I have seen it in use with a 40+ lb imaging Newtonian payload, and it was much more stable than the conventional 2" tripod. the built in vibration suppression pads in the fee are a nice touch also!Answer by: Chris Hendren (Admin) on Mar 24, 2016 1:43:00 PMThe option website talks about other brand mounts fitting this Tri-pier with an adapter plate. Is this true? What adapter plate would be for a celestron AVX mount?Question by: Jeff purcell on Aug 30, 2015 12:52:00 PMHello, I have read everywhere this Tri-pier comes with a case... Does it? I haven't found not a single Word of it here... Thanks!Question by: David Rivas on Jul 3, 2015 5:57:00 PMThis version of the Tri-Pier does not have a case. The part# IO-8034-RC comes with a rolling case but costs $150 more ($748 vs. $598). We can get the version with the case, but it is not yet on the web. Please call us if you have any questions.Answer by: Chris Hendren (Admin) on Jul 5, 2015 12:41:00 PM
