This Meade altazimuth pier is designed for permanent altazimuth installation in a two meter (seven foot) or larger observatory dome. The pier is 32” tall and 10” in diameter. This puts the eyepiece at an approximate height of 5’ 6” when the scope is pointed about 15° above the horizon. The pier is made of painted steel and weighs 225 pounds.
The base of the pier is a 0.50” thick circular steel plate that’s 24” in diameter. Three 0.75” wide by 5° long slots on a 20” diameter circle are spaced 120° apart around the base to let you bolt the pier to your observatory pad. The top of the pier is a 0.50” thick circular steel plate that’s 16” in diameter. Three 33/64” diameter holes on a 13.5” diameter circle are spaced 120° apart around the top plate let you bolt your 16” Meade telescope to the pier in an altazimuth configuration.
