The Baader Modal Steel Pillar is a fully engineered permanent observatory solution for the small to medium 10Micron mounts (GM1000, GM2000).  Its conical octagonal design has been engineered through modal analysis to avoid prominent resonances.  The sand-filled cavity rapidly dampens vibration.  The end result is a pillar that significantly exceeds the performance of simple round or square tube.

  • Welded Steel, actively dampens vibrations.
  • Bottom plate 500x500 mm
  • Top plate diam. 240mm Dia and 25mm thick
