Cinderblock Pier?

I've seen several piers build of 8x8x16" cinderblocks.   Some are simply connected with concrete adhesive and some being bolted as well.  
Have any of you used such a thing and if so .... can you share any problems you've encountered?
Thanks for your time.

While my cinderblock pier doesn't yet have a scope, I've had no problems so far. It's 30 feet tall (will be a 3-story observatory) built on bedrock.
