I have the SKYWATCHER STAR ADVENTURER PRO and was looking for a study (probably carbon fibre) tripod to sit it on. Will most tripods fit or is there specific ones I need? Was looking at this:


I bought a Star Adventurer a few months ago and tried it on my photo tripod which is similar to the one in your link (except it isn't carbon fiber).  My photo tripod was inadequate for the SA so I pulled out an old 12 pound aluminum Surveyor Tripod that I bought from Universal Astronomics about 15 years ago to mount a really awesome pair of 20x90 binoculars.  Once I found an adapter on Amazon to connect the oversize threads on the tripod to the threads on the SA, it has worked extremely well.  Not sure this is much help, but its one data point for you to consider.
