Re: AP1100 loading heavy scope at 60 inch pier height

If I had a permanent spot, I'd go immediately for one of those Pier-Tech adjustable piers. The new models look very robust and the flexibility of eye position would be excellent. Alas, I am stuck lifting my 180 f/7 to the top of a 48" height on the 1100 and Losmandy tripod. Not too bad, but over the years, I have indeed noticed how the 180 has gained weight. So it does not get used and sits in storage. A refuge for spiders. I dont' have such problems with the 10" Mak-cass. It's much easier and lighter to handle, and honestly a superior observing experience. Good luck and clear sky.
