Has anyone any experience with one of these?  

Rigel Pier for EQ6 (EQ6 pro etc)

I started out with a home made concrete pier but I wasn't too pleased with the result.  So, in the end, I caved in and bought the Rigel. I bought mine with an EQ5 adapter plate but I intend to replace it for an EQ6 plate later on this year if and when I upgrade my mount.  It arrived on a pallet and I moved it into position fairly easily with a sack trolley - 75kg sounds about right.

It's been in position for a few months now and I'm happy with it. I think it's a lot of cash to pay for a simple piece of engineering, but it's tidier and more convenient than my previous solution so I'm not complaining.

Thanks Alec. I have ordered a Dome from Pulsar, and will opt for the Rigel Pier to go with it. Appreciate your reply.
