    8" MiniPier for ZEQ25 Mounts is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nicely made Piece, no instructions Bought this to allow my telescope-camera setup to track beyond the meridian without hitting the mount. Now can track about 1.5 hours past meridian, until the mount's Dec drive box hits the lower RA casting (part that screws to tripod head). Note: box comes with 5.5" extension inside, and a bag of parts that are needed to convert it to the 8" size (3 tubes and 3 longer bolts). I thought when I pulled it out of the box that the wrong one had been shipped, as there were no instructions inside and I did not see the bag of parts. Conversion is easy and then you have the option as to which length you want to make it, 5.5 or 8 inches. As always, excellent service and prompt shipping by B&H.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid product after brief initial confusion When I opened the box I thought B&H had shipped the 5 inch version. It turned out that there are three inserts and three longer bolts. So you need to remove the bolts currently holding the top and bottom of the pier together, insert the spacers, then use the longer bolts to tighten it all together. There are no instructions of content list included, but is was not difficult to work out. It seems solid enough and comes with one advantage for me. When you polar align, you need to keep the bolt which runs through the spreader tray up to the mount head slightly loose so you can adjust azimuth. After alignment, when you tighten the mount/spreader bolt, I found that the spreader can make the legs shift a little. With the pier in place, you can tighten the mount/spreader bolt into the pier to make it secure. There is a separate (captive) bolt in the pier to secure the mount. This will help if polar alignment is critical for you. Although advertised fr the ZEQ25, I have mine attached to a CEM25 mount with no issues.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes life easier. Bought the skyguider kit (includes short tripod). This made it a lot easier to use as the needed height allows me to sit in a low chair to set-up and focus instead of getting on the ground. Sturdy and functional.
