I will be receiving a new 1100GTO from the next production run in early 2015. It will be installed in a ROR observatory and I am trying to plan for the pier height. Could somebody tell me the approximate height of the mount from the pier plate (using a 119FSA) to the dovetail saddle plate (DOVELM162). The altitude will be set to approximately 31 degrees (i.e., observatory is near 31 deg North).



Thanks in advance.

Hi Andy,

Congratulations on the, soon to be, new mount. While I was waiting for my mount I found this��Dimension Calculator on AP's website.

"DimensionsTo determine the appropriate pier height for your system and to calculate many of the dimensions that vary with your latitude setting, please try this Excel spreadsheet Latitude Dimension Calculator. Note: If the spreadsheet does not contain the information for the 1100GTO, please check back soon."

It should haveeverything you need and the 1100 is on it now. If the link doesn't work just look above the pricing for the 1100 on the website.

Enjoy!

Keith
