Just wondering what others have done. I see that in the drawings of the observatory there is a mention of offsetting the pier by about 10 inches. I have a home-made pier that I'm using with a 12" LX200 classic and the wedge mount. I my last observatory I did find that the space between the wall and back of the scope was kind of tight when pointing toward the south. The 10 inch offset shown in the diagram should give some nice extra headroom back there. I'm thinking of going with the 10 inch offset to the south of center of the observatory to give some more equal (or at least more!) room when pointed south.
Any comments or experience with this from anyone out there?
