If the pier plate is too large, how far away from it should I install the MX Base to Pier Adaptor Plate to avoid any telescope contact with the pier top plate?
I can send you an Inventor CAD file I design to show you my setup.
Thank you for your prompt response

descyr:The top steel metal plate of my pier is square and measure 14''L x 14''W x 3/4'' thick.
I hope this helps.

Here is a picture of my pier and MX mount
You'll have to make sure the counterweight shaft and counterweights clear (it looks as though they will), and you might need to configure the software slew limits accordingly.
Otherwise, this appears to be a robust setup.
