Pegusus Pier

Originally designed to take my fork mounted 12" LX 200 on a wedge, the top plate was later modified to take my new Skywatcher EQ 8 mount and the now de-forked LX200 with a Meade 127mm triplet refractor riding piggy back, a star diagonal, separate guiding scope, cameras and all sorts of other gear (as we do).

It can certainly take a lot of weight, and the mount is perfectly aligned.

Its in good order and I will sell separately, if needed, for $500 plus freight. PMs only please or call me on 0412 552 322

It is currently in place in my observatory in SE Queensland, (which is also for sale) but will find its way home next week.
