Current constrution progress 


The telescope pier has to be separated from the trailer floor and must be moveable. Not easy to do, but I try.......

Following a first look to my construction.

Next, after doing some paintwork, I have to install my computer controlled multipurpose plattform, where I can use various optics and cameras............


On the top of the pier I have a fine adjustable pole-wedge........


.....  here a look at my "working horse" a used LX200-GPS forkmount equipped with a mulripurpos platform for various optics ....

Following some pictures: I can use the platform at my local garden-pier, even mobil on my tripod and inside the trailer.I can setup various optics and I can balance them with adjustable counterweights


To make the pier stable I had to construct a new heavy base.

Following pictures are showing the base in travelling (lowered up)- and observing-mode (lowered down).
