NEXDOME PIER or as suggested by some, NEX PIER is now ready to ship.
This steel pier offers an outstandingly rigid, 36 inch tall permanently mounted installation engineered to minimize any vibration. Thanks to 1/4" thick central tube, NexPier is strong enough to carry the weight of a big 14" catadioptric scope with any and all accessories including piggybacked telescopes.
The top leveling plates are attached by 6 of 1/2" heavy duty bolts which provides precise levelling and also better vibration resistance.
To make the horizonal adjustments easier the whole base plate unit can rotate 360 degrees and locked by 6 1/2 inch screws attached to the pier directly.
Two side access points on the bottom of the pier provides a safe conduit for cables from and to telescope.
Fine tuning and leveling is typically accomplished using the 8 pier mounting bolts. The wide 15 3/4" x 15 3/4" foot plate provides a very stable support for the central 8.75" tube. Good for critical observing and astrophotography tasks.
