Hi Paul,

This has been on my mind when I decide to eventually upgrade my tracker. I'm currently using iOptrons 1st generation tracker with cheapish tripod which has been ok but obviously with a tracker upgrade and a heavier payload, I'll be in the same boat as you in which direction to go?
I recently stumbled across the Neewer 66 carbon fiber tripod online.
Can be found on Amazon for around $120ish if I recall correctly. These seem to be more than capable and have great reviews. Could be a cheaper yet more versatile suggestion and this tripod is even mentioned by Trevor Jones (Astrobackyard) as being a good choice.
I don't know if any folks here have used before but I'd be most curious to get some opinions on this as a suggestion.
