Pier Height Question for SCT Users

My 8" SCT was on a fork mount when I bought my LeSueur Astro Pier

www.davidillig.com/observatory14.shtml>. The height was perfect. Now that the

OTA is on a G-11 the pier is too short -- the eyepiece is too low for comfort.



If you're about 5'11" or so I would like to know the distance from the floor (or other surface

that you stand on) to the eyepiece cup with your mount in the CWD position, OTA pointing

toward the NCP. If I'm lucky enough to get several answers I can use them as a starting point

in deciding how far to extend my pier.



Many thanks,



David
