Wow, what a view! Seems a shame to put a fence in front of it.

The mount evolution went like this; the Polaris became the Super Polaris, then the SP became the Great Polaris, and finally the GP became the Great Polaris 2. I think the Polaris is rated for 10 pounds.

There was also a New Polaris in the mix; looked a lot like the Polaris but had a tilted elevation fork like the Super Polaris.

I just finished building this 12" half pillar for my Porta II, the tripod itself is very tall so I'm thinking about cutting it down so it's a little bit more portable. As it sits the legs only need to be extended 4" if at all.

Well, I have a new "mount", and a new "OTA"...
Posted to the CATS forum, but hey.... The Mount needs its own "view area"...

The pier is from my prior setup. There is a big chunk of concrete below that base... The old setup was an LX200 (8") set on the steel top plate in Alt/AZ, with the 80mm mounted piggy-back.

I got the "Dan's Pier Top Plates" for the CGEM, and added an extra "base plate" for this high rise. That seems to be working VERY WELL !!! Dan makes some good stuff !!

The CGEM is standard (and brand new), added the ADM "side-by-side", and of course the new Edge HD (8").

Got it all polar aligned, and cameras aligned and focused. Now hoping for some good skies tonight, and first "official" light...

Here is a better look at the ADM "side-by-side" configuration.
