COMPLETED - Steel pier - surface rusted

Recommended Posts

I have a steel pier for sale. This was purchased along with a pulsar dome and believe it is an older Pulsar model. The pier sat in a yard, exposed to the elements for a few years before I purchased it so there is some surface rust and flaking paint but will clean up nicely.  £250 and buyer will need to collect from Suffolk.

Yes, the pier is still available but due to its weight you should be able to collect from Suffolk.

Edit:  If you were wanting this before Christmas, I am around today but not available after that until 30th Dec.

No not required for Christmas, so until after the 30th December would be fine. I am very interested in this. Collection from Suffolk should not be a problem for me. First refusal please.

      Question, is my pier out of level if I'm trying to PA (with asiair pro) and both directions are moving when I adjust the alt bolts? I can't get the mount polar aligned.

      Pier mounted on a concrete slab

      Thanks in advance

      I'm looking for a bolt down pier suitable for my EQ5 and a future upgrade to an EQ6. 
      I'm in Glasgow and can collect, will go a fair distance for the right thing.

      After automating the dome on my Pulsar Obsy which has been a revelation, I have spent a considerable time researching how I could automate on what is a very basic manual shutter. The existing shutter slides on the aperture side of the dome and supported by two curved aluminium rods at the rear. What I will require is to create a runner system to allow the shutter to open & close smoothly, be aligned & contained to enable attaching a motor and drive system, thus allowing software automation.
      The rollers are 30 mm dia nylon roller bearings, four per side of the shutter opening. This will allow the shutter to slide smoothly over the open aperture.
      The rear side of the dome needed to be built up so I could affix tracks to enable the shutter to slide smoothly to the rear of the dome. This was relatively tricky as I had to build rear track support blocks to line up with the existing shutter. I plumped for wooden supports as I had to mount the on a sloping curved dome and as they had  to be mounted vertically, creating some rather complex compound angles and curves. These were bonded in place and further secured with stainless screws from within the dome. Then having formed the arc in which the shutter will run I attached UPVC strips to complete the assembly. The sides will be cladded with UPVC.

      The calculations had to be quite precise as I didn't have much breathing space 

      To be continued...........

      I have already earlier written an article about the old observatory at Stockholm in Sweden where I live. Only 30 minutes away from my home by the subway. A friend to me, Nippe, told me that he had written an article about that observatory's history. I got permission to use it on my homepage. I have translated it to english (not perfect but I hope you understand the information) and implemented it among my earlier photos from the observatory.
      Nippe's history article is very interesting, a lot of information about the observatory that I wasn't aware about.
      Enjoy reading !
