Hello all .... a hello!

My name is Mick, I live in the east of England and use a POD mounted on a deck. My equipment is pier mounted inside. The pier is offset slightly to try and get the Zenith.

Love it!

Just set my pod and pier up. No plate adaptor so it's sort of just sitting there waiting. Really stoked though.

Charles, the PZT kit costs about $500.oo. Then you need to buy the plywood to build the table itself, and paint for it.Or, check the POD files, Get the drawings and build your own PZT table.

If you decide to get one or build your own, contact me and I'll give you some pointers.

John, my cGEM mount doesn't go very far past meridian. My next mount I definitely want it going past the meridian.

Pzt, how much was that?

Charles, sounds like you might want to invest in a Pod Zenith Table or PZT.

it's south west actually. So my deck faces due east, perfect for telescopes. I can see north and all the way to horizon south. Good coverage of sky but definitely some glow.

The best thing about my setup is this is just outside my bedroom, so my USB cables from scope to telescope go right next to my bed, I literally put my laptop on my table next to bed and telescope while sleeping, wake up if guider fails usually indicating I've gone past meridian and shot is over.
