Re: Rotating pier adapter #Polar_Alignment
Be careful how far you rotate the mount in azimuth! The “north” leg should always be under the counterweight shaft or your mount/scope setup will become very unstable.

Seems you could just drill extra holes in the pier tube to allow more position options. You could also machine slots in place of the holes on the tube and use washers and bolts to clamp once rotated. that would give you perhaps another
total of 10 additional degrees adjustment besides the existing azimuth adjustment in the mount. A machinist could easily build an adapter for what you want.
