Re: New member - advice on switching from G11 to AP900

Marvellous - that is exactly what I want to do.
To confirm, your specially machined G11 pier adapter, being a smaller diameter
than the AP's FSA "flat surface adapter" , has the Astro Physics part (SFA)
bolted on top of it. Then the AP900 simple mates with this as standard.
Can you post a picture of your G11/AP900 adapter or coupler in the photos
section? I will take it to a machine shop. Wish AP would sell one - seems like
such a common thing.
P.S. I don't know quite why, but I like the Losmandy pier better than the AP
or ATS. Would seem to make good sense to not have a lot of piers kicking
around the house, if AP would just sell the part like you made for yourself.
