Meade 16" Permanent Altazimuth Pier
The 16" Permanent Altazimuth Pier is an outstandingly rigid, permantly mounted pier engineered to minimize any vibration. Strong enough to carry the weight of the 16" LX200 with any and all accessories including piggybacked telescopes. Ideal where the dome or other observatory has a minimum of "elbow room" and an equatorial pier would require too much space. Can be utilized in an observatory dome as small as 2 meters (7') in diameter. Results in a easily accessible and convenient eyepiece orientation which changes less with telescope position than on an equatorially mounted scope. For permanent installations only- must be bolted to a solid foundation. Standard height is 32", custom height available. Additional charges may apply for increased height. Main pier is 10" diameter 1/2" wall steel column. Weight is approximately 225 pounds. Ships on pallet.
