All,

My AP-1200 arrived last week! It was purchased specifically for an
observatory I'm planning to build, so I didn't order a portable
pier.
Since the observatory isn't built yet (I expected to be on the
waiting
list for a couple of years), I've made a tripod for temporary use
so I
can get familiar with the mount. I've uploaded a photo of the
homemade tripod to the files section.

Along with some odd pieces from my garage, I spent about $35 for
lumber and hardware. Hopefully this will do until I can get the
observatory built.
