I am awaiting delivery of my CEM120 and am in the process of dismantling my NEQ6 from its Observatory pier.
when I say me I really mean my friends as I am in a sling 24 hours a day (yes that includes bed and shower etc) for 6 weeks following my tendons being screwed back on to my rotator cuff (shoulder).

i cannot seem to find anywhere the height of the CEM120 head.

ideally if anyone has one and is willing to let me know how high this beast is when in zero position at UK latitude I would appreciate it. From base plate to top of saddle.

i am just trying to work out if I need to adjust my pier height.

Many thanks

Michael

ps trying to type with my left hand (I am right handed) means I may be a little slow in my responses.

Thanks Dave. I have studied them in great detail (along with others) and everyone says that they are big. However I don’t know what “big” is.

i have an NEQ6 on a mini pier on top of my proper pier so was hoping it would not be any higher than that.

Thank you old_eyes I had not found that. If it is 500mm high that does not seem much different to my NEQ6  height.

It always looks huge on the YouTube videos.

i will find out on Monday I guess.

It arrived today so here are a few of the obligatory unboxing videos.

it will take a while until I get it mounted so I will not be able to measure the true height at my 55 degrees North until then.

A little more progress.
Thank you Cristian for making the plate for the mount. Harry for making it fit my pier and lifting the mount in to position.
A few more small steps forward today thanks to Ken.
Still a long way to go but as I am in the sling for a few weeks yet there is no hurry. 
May update the firmware as that should be manageable one handed.
