Flat Surface Adapter with Flat Pier Plate for 1600GTO and all 1200 Mounts - For 10" ATS and other non-Astro-Physics piers (1612FSA-FP).
If you are ordering a 10" ATS pier for your 1600GTO, you will need to order this adapter to interface the pier post with the base of your mount. You may also consider it if you are fabricating your own pier for either the 1600GTO or any 1200 mount.
This item is constructed of two machined aluminum parts bolted together - a thick flat plate and our Flat Surface Adapter for 1600GTO and 1200 Mounts (1612FSA). Since the bottom of the flat plate is designed to fit into the 10" ATS Piers, the diameter (9.540") is too small to be used in the Astro-Physics 10" Portable Piers.
Use with 10" ATS Piers and 1600GTO
- The base of the 1612FSA-FP has already been machined per the specifications provided by ATS to fit into their piers without further modification. The 1600GTO will fit directly into the top portion of the 1612FSA-FP.
Use for Other Piers and 1600GTO
- Machine the bottom portion of this plate to fit the I.D. of your pier. The base of the 1600GTO will fit directly into the top portion of the 1612FSA-FP.
Use for Other Piers and 1200 Mounts
- Machine the bottom portion of this plate to fit the I.D. of your pier. Please refer to the diagram to determine if your pier is suitable.
