Product Description

PrimaLuceLab C82 Pier for Concrete Base with Flange for EQ6

Our C82 pier is built in stainless steel and it has a high stiffness and load capacity, thanks to 5 mm thickness central tube. Together with flange for mount connection, it is 82 cm high. In this way, if you want to use to install our WEB230 parabolic antenna (with SkyWatcher EQ6 or AZ-EQ6 SynScan mounts), you will be sure that this does not touch the ground even when it points to horizon. When you order C82 pier, you can choose which connection flange you want, depending on mount to install in. If you want to install a mount that is not listed as an option, please contact us and we will produce on request the needed adapter.

Key Features:

  • Stable and safe, perfect for fixed installation of telescopes or radio telescopes

  • Thick central tube for high stiffness

  • Base with pairs of holes at 120 degrees for perfect leveling of installed instrument

  • Flange for equatorial mounts (various models available)

  • Paint for long life

  • Pier Diameter - 14cm

  • Pier Height - 82cm

Pier's base is circular and it is 35 cm in diameter. Here there are three pairs of holes set at 120°. Each pair is composed of a through hole in which it is possible to insert the screw for fixing to the concrete base and a threaded hole in which to insert a M16 screw thrust to set, during column installation, perfect leveling of pier itself.

Just an update to my previous review of the C82 EQ5 version posted on 31 March. The pier uses all standard size metric bolts. Bolts are included for the adapter plate and attaching the mount head to the plate. You have to buy base mounting and leveling bolts for the base of the pier. The base is threaded for an M16-2.0 leveling bolts. In addition to Orion SVP mount, the C82 EQ5 version will also support a Celestron Omni CG-4 mount. (Posted on 5/8/2017)

I special-ordered the C82 Pier with an EQ5 adapter for use with my Orion Sirius and SVP mounts. The shipment arrived unscathed from Italy via DHL with final delivery via the USPS. It was nicely boxed using straps, heavy cardboard, Styrofoam and foam wrap. The pier is steel and the adapter appears to be machined aluminum. The weld joints were superb, using 5/16" steel for the fins and 1/4" steel for the base. The 13-3/4" base has three 1/2" threaded holes for leveling screws and three 7/8" holes for mounting. The pier tube is 1/8" thick and 5.5" in diameter. The adapter plate is held by three bolts and the azimuth post threads into the plate with an allen wrench. The base is solid except for three round weep holes. So, the pier can be easily filled with damping material like shredded rubber. The pier features a 1x3" side port to tighten your mount to the adapter. The pier has nice heavy coat of white enamel paint and the adapter has a red finish. Overall height from top of adapter to bottom of base plate is almost 32". Hardware is included for attaching the adapter to the pier and mount. In summary, this is an excellent pier for an entry-level observatory with nice features, good overall build and superb craftsmanship. Woodland's pricing is very competitive with other piers being sold on the market. I am very pleased with my purchase. (Posted on 3/31/2017)
