I am thinking about installing a permanent pier to mount my GM-8. I am looking for info

regarding commercially available piers and other info. I am using a C 9.25 and TV 102.

Thanks

Lesueur Manufacturing (www.astropier.com)makes a good steel column

pier. I bought one in January for my GM8 and am very happy with both

the service and the pier itself.

I installed an "Astro Pier" from Le Sueur Manufacturing for my G11 and

I'm very happy with it. You can see how it was installed and the

finished pier on my deck at www.alexthedog.com under "Building the

Pier". The pier came with a great kit for embedding the bolts into

concrete and very clear instructions.

Aftermarket piers are expensive unless you can do your own welding.

I use reinforced concrete poured into a tube that can be had from

Home Depot for under $10. On top of that is the Losmandy MA pier

adapter. You can see the pictures of it on my web site at:

I have no problems with vibrations even with cars passing by or me

walking in the observatory as evident by the auto guiding tracking

display.



Best Regards,
