This heavy-duty C120 pier is the perfect solution to install even a large telescope in an astronomical observatory.
The C120 pier has a high load capacity of 150 kg (132-pounds), it provides high-stability, and it requires less space than a standard tripod.
A pier will prevent your telescope from touching tripod legs during movements!
There are different optional adapters available for this pier: EQ8, GM1000, GM2000, or GM3000 mounts. Please fill-in your option in the order notes.
The C120 pier is 120 cm (47.24-inches) high (height from the ground including the an adapter).
It is made with 4 mm thick steel.
The tube diameter is 220 mm ( 8.66-inches). This will ensure it has a high load capacity.
At the base of the pier there are 3 pairs of holes at 120°. Each pair consists of:
- A through-hole - used to fix the pier to the threaded bars (not included) that have to be in the concrete base.
- An M20 threaded hole, - where you screw in the M20 screws (which are supplied in the package) to allow leveling of the C120 pier.
The C120 pier for concrete base weighs 60 kg (132-pounds) without an adapter.
You can order the C120 pier also without the adapter: in this case the user will have to make an adapter for his mount, in the image below you will find the dimensions of the adapter with the connections for the C120 pier, then you will have to add the connection for your mount. Please state, "No Adapter" in the Order Notes.
