Are all skywatcher steel tripods the same?

Recommended Posts

Morning everyone,

as the title says really.  I have a 2 inch steel tripod from skywatcher already.  I have ordered a EQ6-R Pro mount which I asked to be delayed for delivery until I am around to receive it.  However, on my pier, I have used a brake disc as a pier adapter for my old AVX mount which works brilliantly.  I want to replace that with a suitable brake disc for my new skywatcher mount.  If the steel tripods are the same across the whole range of skywatcher mounts (EQ8 I think is the exception), then I already have what I need to get the dimensions and source what I need.  If they are different, I'll just wait until I get delivery.

Hope this all makes sense,
