CGEM altitude bolt size
      #3601085 - 02/02/10 09:25 PM

Can someone tell me the size of the altitude bolts front and back. I am mounting the CGEM on a homemade pier plate and am thinking of just using a bolt for adjustment instead of the LARGE handled adj bolt that came with it. The plate is 1.5" X 11" round. If I use the original alt bolt(rear) I will have to cut a big chunk off of the plate for clearance to turn.

thanks for any info

The back is M10. I'm not near my mount, I think the front is smaller.
