    Questions & Answers

    Ask a Question
    • How does this attach to the tripod? I have a surveyors tripod and photographers tripod as well. Is there just female socket hole in it holding it to the tripod?

      There is a central screw coming up from the bottom through the tripod top and three leveling screws that fit into connection pockets above each tripod leg.

    • Would this fit on a CGE Pro Tripod without the need for a special top plate etc - that is can I attach this to my tripod with a run to a hardware store or do I need something special?

      Hi Steve, Sorry, but it will not. The CGE attaches to its tripod with three bolts around the side, 120 degrees apart, while the iOptron attaches to the mount using a center bolt. Thank you, Sean

    • does this mount fit for mini tower tripod?

      Yes the AZ Mount Pro head will fit on the Ioptron Mini Tower Pro Tripod.
