Shaillesh,

 

It is safest and easiest to load a scope by yourself in the Park 2 position.

Subject: [ap-gto] AP1100 loading heavy scope at 60 inch pier height

 

I have an AP1100 on a pier sitting about 59 inches above ground/concrete floor. To load a TEC 180FL at that height in the recommended Park 3 position (CWs down) is a stretch. Is it possible to load such a scope in Park 4 or 5 ? If not then any tips will help.
