CG-5 Pedestal mount source

Are there any other sources for a pedestal mount for the CG-5? Googling doesn't turn up anything obvious.

Sadly they've been discontinued. I have 48" and 60" versions. IMO, they are a little underbuilt and I suspect that you could work with a machinist to come up with a much sturdier pier assembly. Alternately you could buy and Astro-Physics pier and then work with a machinist to develop a top plate for your mount head.

Having read a bit more last night, I think I'm going to bite the bullet and just sink a pier in the backyard. It's overkill for what I am looking for and given the various trees, houses and other hazards I will miss not being able to move about but I think it is probably the best solution.
