Quote:After multiple procrastination delays, I am in process of putting up an 8' ExploraDome in my back yard. I have an LX-200 8" scope currently. Looking for advice on the pier which will be cement. I was going to go with a 10" diameter but currently wondering if that should be 12". Anyone have any thoughts?Thanks!Kevin

Quote:Thanks john, I had planned on putting the deck boards down, then using the wall base support as a template and cut the boards off so they will even with the base. Then I need to decide on what to put on the floor inside - maybe those rubber interlocking mats.But, anyone have thoughts on how to seal the gap between the floor and the cement pier? We have a lot of field mice here.
Quote:Don't let the floor stick out beyond the bottom ring. You WILL get water inside if you do.
