Pillar for the Vixen GPDX

Up one level

By Odd Høydalsvik, Bergen, Norway

The foundation is built on solid rock

Reinforcements fastened in holes drilled in the ground

Screws for the pillar base fastened in concrete

The wooden plate holds the screws in position while concrete dries

Some days later the plate could be removed

Positioning lower nuts to support the base of the pillar

The top of the pillar with the arrangement for fastening the equatorial head and the mechanism for leveling.

The base of the Vixen GPDX mount in place

Adjusting everything level

Ready to observe
The Vixen R200SS equipped with Canon EOS20D DSLR
