Product Description

Advanced Telescope Systems 12" Portable Pier 30" Height

  • The portable telescope pier contains no parts which will rust when exposed to weather. All machined parts are constructed of high quality 6061 aluminum and powder paint treated for a durable and attractive finish.
  • All bolts and screws are stainless steel.
  • The telescope pier tube assembly is secured on both ends with aluminum plates to eliminate vibration effects. The primary leg attachment blocks are welded firmly to the pier tube for improved stability.
  • Piers of 8" OD are made with 0.125 inch wall (thickness) aluminum tubing. Piers of 10" and 12" OD are made with 0.25 inch wall tubing. Piers of 8" OD can be made with 0.25 inch wall tubing for an additional $200 charge.
  • Pier legs are constructed of square tubing and are TIG welded together for improved strength and rigidity. Fold down legs provide for easy transport to remote locations. No tools are required for set-up. Foot pads are available in aluminum or hard rubber, per customer request.
  • Turnbuckle adjusters between the pier base and legs provide for precise leveling adjustments on uneven terrain.
  • Telescope pier adapters are rigidly constructed to insure a solid connection in the critical junction between pier tube top and mount. Available adapters include Meade, Celestron, Losmandy, Paramount, Astro-Physics, Takahashi and other mount manufacturers. Custom adapters available. Pier adapters are not included in the pier pricing.
  • Weight of the portable telescope pier ranges between 30 and 70 pounds depending on the pier diameter and height. All telescope piers come standard with a balanced carrying handle to facilitate easy carrying.
  • Custom pier heights are available upon request.
  • For added weather protection, a clear polyurethane coating is available for an additional $100 per pier.
