This is a pier that I had made at a local machine shop to work with my 12" LX200. I have since sold the scope and the pier is looking for a new home.
This is a heavy item, constructed of 1/2" steel and a 6" steel tube. I would estimate that the weight is somewhere around 75-100 lbs. The total height is 32". The base is "semi-triangular" and is drilled for 3/4" mounting bolts. The top is just a bit larger in length than a LX200 12" fork arm base and has a single mounting hole. It is covered in 1/4" felt padding which can easily be removed if desired.
There are a few rust spots on the base and at the bottom of the top plate on the welds. This is very superficial and could easily be cleaned and repainted.
Obviously, this is a pickup item only.
This made a rock-solid, vibration-free mount for the LX-200. With a bit of ingenuity it could be adapted for other projects.
It's a longshot, but I would be willing to trade this pier for a 5mm or 6mm Zeiss Orthoscopic or a brand new Autostar 497 control pad and some cash.
Thanks for looking,
Millersburg, PA (30 miles north of Harrisburg)
