Thanks all for the opinions on the pier heights. I talked with Howard and
them may be able to make one for me from a 42" tube.

I opted for the 48-inch pier. I usually set the pier base on some
pavers (for leveling), so that adds a couple of inches. I need to use
a small step (about a foot tall) to get my 6-inch refractor into the
saddle. I'm vertically challenged as well, but since I do both visual
and imaging I didn't want the EP height to be too low when viewing
near the zenith.
