Re: iExos mounted to 3rd party tripod #iEXOS-100

My prototype pier, the mounting plate is simply a treated 2x6 with a hole cut through it slightly larger than the mount bottom, I have the plastic ring from the factory tripod screwed to the plate to keep the mount centered, a long bolt and washer holds it down.  Trying to decide if I will go with longer 4x4 mounted in concrete or a steel pipe for the final pier.  It would need to be about a 10' pipe or post to be tall enough.
