As my balcony is unfortunately looking directly into the city of Vienna, I build a pier on the SE edge, so I am able to look to South and a bit West as well. I wanted to attach more pics, but unfortunately the file size did not permit it.

 

End result:

Even if your view of the night sky is restricted, your daytime view is beautiful.

You could gain some stability if you shorten down your rat cage to as low as it will go.

Be really careful mounting your scope.

Of course. Although I have an idea, how I can mount it, without dropping the scope or myself over the balcony.
