Meade 16" Permanent Altazimuth Pier #07005. This steel pier
offers an outstandingly rigid, permanently mounted installation
engineered to minimize any vibration. Strong enough to carry the weight
of the 16" LX200 with any and all accessories including piggybacked
telescopes. This pier is a full 10" diameter and features 1/2" wall
thickness for rock solid performance.
Ideal for smaller domes or other observatories where there is a
shortage of elbow room and an equatorial pier would require too much
space. Can be utilized in an observatory dome as small as 2 meters (7')
in diameter. The alt-az configuration also results in a easily
accessible and convenient eyepiece orientation which changes less with
telescope position than on an equatorially mounted scope.
For permanent installations only- must be bolted to a solid
foundation. Standard height is 32", custom height available. Additional
charges may apply for increased height. Weight is approximately 225
pounds. Ships on pallet.
Product carries full one year Meade factory limited warranty.
