If you know AstroPier, you know what this is. If not, they are fine piers for mounting heavy-duty mounts and telescopes. I acquired this when I bought a whole kit (scope, mount, etc.) but ended up parting out most of the rest of the gear. It appears the firm is no longer in business, but these piers are made to last decades!

This pier was used with an AP1200 mount.

To install this, you'll need to make a template from plywood or chipboard and cut the three J-bolt holes, then dig a hole about 4' deep and 18" in diameter. Fill the hole with concrete, slip the J-bolts into the template, and press them down into the concrete. Put a bubble level or a couple of torpedo levels on the template to insure the concrete sets up level. Once the concrete has set for 48 hours, you can put the mount on.

You'll find there is no mount like a permanent mount on a pier bolted to a deep column of concrete!

Asking $600 plus shipping. I'll cover the PayPal if you use that. If you want to meet, I'll meet you up to 200 miles from Tampa, Florida OR in Destin or Miami, as I travel to those locations on business.

Note: The AP Precision-Adjust Rotating Pier Adapter with Azimuth Bearing is not included.

Thanks for looking!
