The bolt here is M12..today I purchased the correct bolt and have fitted it..at the moment I am polar aligning the mount via my long exposure star trail method using my nikon...need to find CSP so I can fit the little post that sits between the azimuth knobs...it is pretty well there but I am going for as perfect as it can be and after a cuppa I will take the mount off again drill the hole, tap it and fit the post so hopefully I can go to bed with it all behind me..it's pretty clear here but with the Moon and moisture I am not going to get the mount running..besides my lap top is not with me..if it was I think I would have to photograph something.

So happy that the casting has worked out so well and that the pier is finished...
