Hi Mike,
I was thinking sand at first, but concrete may be a better idea. What are your thoughts on it?

Hi Don

That sounds like a good design. Are you also planning to fill the pier with concrete or sand when you bury it in the ground ?

The advantage to a plain pier is that it will allow you a little more range of movement without having to worry about pier crashes. The one downside to the A-P portable pier is that the trusses interfere with pointing to the meridian at some declinations.
