Strong enough to carry the weight of the 16" LX200 and LX600 with any and all accessories including piggybacked telescopes. The standard height of the pier is 39.5", as measured from the bottom side of the base flange up to the top angled corner of the vertical section (see drawing for details). This height can be altered for an additional fee.
