Colin, thanks for taking the time to reply.

I tried some more imaging sessions last night and had no obvious vibration effects on images.  I not sure if there was less traffic passing – I had also tightened up the RA and Dec axis slackness a little, there has to be a little on the ME otherwise it jams when slewing.  I’ve read a lot about adding sand, but no reports actual improvement  of before and after sand.  Have you actually tried this method.  The pier does not sound a  ringing tone  when struck .  I shall try out your suggestions.
