I am willing to convert a normal tripod mount "SIROI SH-15 tripod" to a goto system with OnStep. Any suggestions are welcome.

First, the term "tripod mount" is not used within the amateur astronomy community, and does not mean anything.

A mount, as far as OnStep is concerned, is the part that sits on top of the tripod and has at least two axis with two motors to a) cancel the apparent motion of the sky and b) provide Goto functionality, among other things.

The tripod is just something sturdy that the mounts sits on top of.

If you mean the Sirui SH-15, this is not a mount at all. It has no motors or gears that can be moved by motors.
