I have used the ETX125 on my Evolution mount and takes it no problem. Alternatively you could use a Nexstar SE mount (have had one in the past).

Yoy can also look at the Skywatcher range of single fork arm mounts. One option is the AZ-GTI , that is sold with 127mm similar scope.

One note with most of these the scope will be rotated 90 degrees fro how its normally mounted. But not a big deal.

You will need to get a Vixen 7" universal dovetails to mount to the holes already in place at the bottom of the OTA.

I have two one OTA on its own and one full ETX. Seriously need to downsize but optics on both are good and i cant decide.
I was going to convert the second OTA to a Wegat but have not got around to it.
