That is quite the setup Anton. I don't think the breeze will be bothering you at all. Very smart with the nut/bolt leveling system. The sonotube concrete pier idea is exactly what I did with my first homemade 8" equatorial when I was about 16. 45 years later, I think the present homeowners still use the pier to hold a large flower pot, lol. I can't tell from the 2 photos, is there a concrete pad to stand on? It does wonders to keep your feet out of the damp grass, though it can be rough if you drop an eyepiece!! Thanks for sharing and good luck when the skies clesr.
