I have a homemade pier, a 5" diameter steel pipe that is 84" long. I used it with the lower 42" buried leaving 42" above the ground but you can vary this height above ground. The top is cut at a 45 deg angle (there's a story about that) with an iron plate 13" x 8" x 1/2" welded on. An SCT mounts nicely on this with a single bolt that drops into a "V" shaped slot at the top. I used to do astrophotography using a C8 on this. It makes a very convenient outdoor mount which you can put an SCT on in a second. This puppy is very heavy so it's PICKUP ONLY in Holmdel, NJ, no ship. Just add paint to keep your spouse happy(?), a post hole and an SCT. Yours for a short drive and $50.
