    DIY pier for Eq6 and my home built 10inch newt

    Hi 3 inch ally tube the legs are made thickish racking struts and the top is an old ally piston machined Up to fit in the top of the tube... I have made a set of homemade rollers and rolled a pair of tube rings I also rolled all the rings on the original build. Will post more photos when I have made the ring's In another life before retirement I was welder so I'm lucky enough to have a welding machine angle grinder and other kit in my shed. I have a mate who lives down road with a lathe and a milling machine in his man cave. I can appreciate not everybodys got all this stuff. This is the scope i built that will go on the mount. Solarboy
  6. Hi guys The skywatcher pier tube rings and losmandy plate is the best part of £500 plus now retired it's to expensive for me now. Tried to get a portable pier on the wanted adds on SGL to no avail. So had a look around the shed racked out a load of bits and bobs that I have been lying around for a few years and started building one this results so far.
