It was over in a corner of the shop gathering dust when I decided a mount on the patio would sure make a quick look-see convenient. Much better than opening up an observatory just to plink around. The only pier I had was shortened for a 14" LX200 GPS. Out of curiosity I put the Linak lift on it and the height was just right. After drilling a couple holes, putting a control box on and some minor adjustments the finished product was tested. It is a much better mount than I thought. Quite stable with a Mach 1 mount on top. From all the way down to all the way up an object stays centered in the FOV (19mm Panoptic in C6). The lift column casting has rollers pressing against the center column keeping it precisely aligned. The switch and box cost $4.00 at a cable supply store.
Overall, the Mach 1 mount is about perfect mounted on the lift and pier. Lag bolting the pier to a plywood floor/sunroom roof makes the mount a little tender for Astrophotography. However, it's fine for visual.

This is with the mount all the way down.
