Pier time

After moving house, I really missed the pier I had built at the previous place, so planning started for pier Mk2.

We have a small garden so compromises had to be made, with the mount here, I get 10' to the East and West, 20' to the South and 30' to the North.

So I dug a hole, stuck some metal in it and let it set solid. It doesn't come out well but the studs are 450mm long.

200Kgs of cement later and we get this.....

A few days later, a touch of Hammerite paint and this is where I am at the moment....

Next step is give it a few more days to fully cure, then stick the mount on top.

I do have a bit of "modification" work to do though as I bought an RVO HD Pier adapter. Whilst the HEQ5 fits, the North peg is not in the correct place so a touch of drilling is required.
