Haha my north wasn't quite perfect, I'll hold my hands up...drilling concrete isn't my forte 😂😂

However had enough adjustment in my bolts to get there, and a nice polar alignment just to make sure all my work wasn't for nowt!

😁😁😁

Do you have link for the anchors in the top concrete block for fixing the pier adapter?  I have another job where that sort of thing might come in quite handy.

First light with the pier. Keeping it simples tonight, but considering i didn't rebalance it and the wind is picking up, I'm very pleased!

What object are you going for  ??  

I'm giving a new pier a work-out as well.  Fingers crossed.

Not a serious imaging night for me I'm afraid, just testing. But got a few shots of m13 :) good luck with the new pier!
