PRICE REDUCED from $440.00

48 Inch Tall, Heavy Duty Pier
This pier was designed to accommodate a Software Bisque ME mount. ( I had high hopes at the time !)
It is built to the specifications outlined on this page:
But does not have holes drilled to accommodate the smaller mount.
The tube wall is heavier material than the spec.
The pier was fabricated in London Ontario by a custom machine shop which lathe cut the tube square at both ends, water jet cut the plates and then welded the components square and true.
I used this pier in my SkyShed in London with good success while making Phenolic plates to mount a Sky Watcher EQ6 Pro and a six inch refractor ( among other scopes ).
I moved the pier to Edmonton last year, but my location does not lend itself to building another observatory.
The price is basically the cost of the materials and machining.
This is pick up only in Edmonton. It's a little heavy and massive to ship unless you arrange shipping and pick-up.
The pier is painted Tremclad silver hammertone.
Price is in Canadian$$$$$


  • Condition very good
