Hi Folks



I just purchased a Losmandy G11 and was curious if alternative Pier extension solutions besides the Losmandy MA exist.



Currently I have a permanent pier already in place and just need some additional clearance.



Thanks

Troy

I presume that it is connected by a single central bolt but I don't know the size. See: www.tetontelescope.com/product_info.php?products_id=366 for details. It is supposed to be able to mount to other flat surfaces, and has the fittings for the Gemini or standard digital control box.
