Pier, Micro Obsy and lots of upgrades

Postby Petrol » Wed Apr 25, 2012 9:25 pm

I’m fed up of carrying all the gear in at silly hours in the morning so have decided to build a permanent setup. I haven’t got room for a walk in obsy so intend to make some sort of roll off / hinged cover. I have decided not to rush so it could take a long time.
This is where the pier will go

I can see Polaris over next door

200mm Dia Tube for the pier. The plan is to stick a galvanized scaffolding pole down it

Image

In order to reduce the overall height, I have moved the guide scope to the bottom of the tube rings. Since this lowers the C of G and reduces the amount of leverage, it will reduce the load on the mount and reduce flexture

That's it for now
