I agree. I have a Le Sueur pier for my G-11 and it works great.

They even added a custom bracket for the G-11 electronincs box for me.

I'll add another good recommendation for Le Sueur Manufacturings

AstroPier. I got a 6" diameter, and it is like a rock. They have a

nice method for templating the anchor bolts...good enamel paint job.

I designed my own, and to have it built wouldn't be much cheaper

than the Astropier, if at all. And with their side gussots, they

make a very stable for your G-11 or anything else.

Hi Chuck,

I'll have to double check, but I think it's 6 inches. It exactly

matches the inside diameter of the G-11 semi-pier tripod.

From what I recall, the I.D. of the pier is a little over 5.75". I made my own a couple of years ago (with the help of a friend who had a lathe and a welding torch), and I started with a 6" O.D., DOM (drawn-over-mandrel) steel pipe, 1/4" wall. You use the DOM variety pipe, since it starts off fairly circular. We then machined it down on the I.D. to match the base of the equatorial head. I took the head apart and used the base to check the work as we progressed. I started with a 6 foot pipe, but had to cut it apart to fit it on the lathe. Then welded it back together, ground down the weld seams, and had it powder coated. Total cost was around $250. The pipe was ~$150, powder coating~$75, + misc. costs. I have it anchored into about 24" of concrete out at our site. I would have gone deeper, but I hit bedrock and didn't want to rent a jackhammer g>. Seems to work just fine for what I use it for.
