Here folks is my solution to a refractor induced bad back, introducing the Orion pier extension! Very pleased I am with it too, I highly recommended these extensions, expensive for a bit old drain pipe but surprisning well engineered.

There's a few of us now on here with crook backs, so anything that helps get out for a bit has to be good.

Let us know how you get a long with it. I hope it works as well as it looks!

Here's my 8" version made by Graham (Astrotec) very solid and good to use too!

Very nice! Great bit of kit the AZ4, they seem to be finally catching on!

One mod I have done to my AZ4 is, turning the Axi dial on the base, upside down so that I can read off the correct direction the scope is pointing! Just undid the centre boss and turned it over then screwed the boss up again!!
