Bog standard Sirius 2.3 metre.... that said, I have to limit southerly slews
to about 15 degrees above the horizon, as the OTA won't quite clear the dome at very low southern altitudes.

The pier really needs to be about 20cm further north. It would then have full and free clearance.....but I didn't foresee a 16" RC when I set it up 20 years ago! (my C11 at the time, had heaps of room )
