Yes, the pierplate is made of concrete, works well for the CGEM DX mount I think.

That is cool and in a way kind of scary. My house has 4 different angles you can view from now, plus street view. Not sure if I like all of this, but it is amazing what we have come to techno wise.

Fall cleaning is finished. After looking at all of the wonderful observatories in this forum, I decided that I needed to do my Fall cleaning and replace the floor. So the results are here.

Congratulations on your new observatory.If you are like most of us I'm sure your hours of observing will greatly increase in your new home. I thought I saw small patches of snow in one picture .How well will your roof system handle the extra weight?
Be Well
Grey
