The biggest plus for me is that this adapter plate has an anodized finish. This makes it more weather and scratch resistant then bare aluminum. Also important, the black anodized finish matches the CGE-PRO color perfectly.
The machining done on the adapter is very good. Al surfaces are very smooth.
The CGE-PRO mount housing fits nicely over the adapter plate. The mount needs to be secured with three UNC 3/8-16 bolts.

I got the package and it was heavy.. I took me a little time to figure out what actually was in the package...
One i figured that out i drilled suitable holes in the eq8 pier tripod top plate and attached the adapter, then I had to temove the top section of the cgem dx tripod and attach it to the cgem dx mont head and finally attach the mount head on the adapter. Very sturdy result and it looks nice the total height is lower the with the cgem dx tripod, a bit heavier but smaller :) I had to reuse the screws from the cgem dx tripod to attach everything to the adapeter, the requires an allen key. It would be nice to have icluded with the adapter a set of screws with wings or similar arrangment to allow for tightening by hand :)
- massive adapter
- should include a set of wingnuts to allow to attach the cgem dx mounthead flange
As for your suggestion: we will consider the wingnuts - however we didn't deem them necessary since most people will mount this only once and not remove it afterwards.
