Pier for Vixen Polaris & LX200

Would this be a good size pipe for my Vixen Super Polaris with the 6" Reflector and later a LX200 12" or 14"? I'll have them cut me a 5' section but I will probably later on maybe have the final height at 3'.

BTW, If I were you I'd look on Ebay for a 2-3 inch thick by 9 inch round that would become your top plate. Have a machinist trim the round for a slip fit, and drill and tap the pipe for 6 grub screws. That way, if you ever went with another mount all you'd have to do is drill mounting holes in the plug.
