Hello all

I just purchased a used G11 with Gemini and will not see it until next week when I pick it up. In the meantime I need to put an adapter on my pier to hold the G11.

My question is...what is the height of the G11 from the base of the mount to the saddle ?

This will help me plan the pier height so I can clear the walls of my obs.



Thanks all. Look forward to being a proud G11 owner.

Cheers

13 3/4 inches from the base of the mount to the center of the knob locking the saddle plate.

-Thanks, Dick. Your comment was timely, just got it as I was grabbing a tape measure and heading off to my local welder. Perfect.

Thanks

Lynn

-Hi Dick

Sorry to be a bother but I want to get these measurements correct...I have a 6" pipe collar (pier extender I guess) that will be welded to the flate plate top of my pier. Given that the G11 drops into that 6" collar does that take the saddle plate knob up to 19 3/4 " height ?

Thanks in advance

Cheers

Lynn
