This steel telescope pier offers an astoundingly rigid, permanently mounted installation engineered to minimize vibration. Observing latitude specified by user to the nearest 0.5 degree. Strong enough to carry the weight of the 16" LX200 and LX600 with any and all accessories including piggybacked telescopes. The standard height of the pier is 39.5", as measured from the bottom side of the base flange up to the top angled corner of the vertical section (see drawing for details). This height can be altered for an additional fee.
For permanent installations only — must be bolted to a solid foundation. Due to the custom build of this product we require the latitude of where it will be mounted to within 0.5 degree. We will contact you directly to obtain this information to provide to the factory. Any desired height modifications should be addressed at this time as well. Weight is approximately 225 pounds and ships on a pallet.
