Those finder brackets are gorgeous. Your telescope is a beautiful and magnificent piece of work.

Good Seeing, Walt

Thanks so much...my daughters boyfriend/and friend came over after a funeral I went to and I asked them to help me mount the GEM on the pier.......what a task!

Here is a pic of it just mounted on the steel pier...Up in the air about 9ft. 150lb of steel is pretty heavy climbing up a ladder.
