Selling my PD6 Dome + Pier-Tech Pier 2 + Wedge for Meade LX 200.

I bought it used, but my plans to have a permanent observatory never really materialized. Selling to fund other projects. It's been sitting in my backyard for a couple of years, never bolted it down. The dome has one single computer cubby.

Local pick up only from Rancho Cordova, California. I will help disassemble the dome during pickup OR I can disassemble it beforehand so you can just put it into your SUV/Truck and drive away.

It used to house a 12" Meade LX 200 on a Pier-Tech pier. I'm also selling the pier (with wedge) for $1600. The Pier has an accessory plate attached and a wedge (for Meade SCTs) attached that I never tried removing.

Buy the Pier and the Dome and I'll discount the total to $3200
