I attached the spacing pier to the main concrete pier with 3/4" all thread.
The spacer pier is constructed with 8" steel pipe and 3/4" steel plate.
The plate the scope sits on is also 3/4" plate resting on 3 bolts 3/4" diameter.
The 10" LX200 EMC with the focuser and DSI-C .
Some of Liana's extra-terrestrial scenes decorate the walls of the warm room.
The Master Control Center.
