Product Description

The Astro-Physics 6" Eagle Adjustable Folding Pier is a one piece tripod pier excellent for advanced imagers since it makes polar alignment an easier process. The height range, between 24" - 36" is adjustment by moving the center column tube up or down within the two inner rings assemblies and moving the legs in toward the center. Adding the optional 8" Extension that attaches to the top of the pier gives a total practical height of up to 44".

The 6" Eagle Folding Pier also includes large hand knobs making making the process tool-free by simply loosening the 3 leg adjustments to spread the legs apart and vice versa. Move the legs in and out from the 6" Eagle's center column to fine tune the pier's height and to level the assembly if the ground is uneven. Then, re-tighten the knobs. The 6" Eagle's feet articulate to adjust to the terrain.

To change the center column position, remove the 6 Pier Column Height Adjustment Knobs and simply slide the center column up or down to the desired position. Attachment points are in 4" increments. Re-insert the knobs, tighten and you're done. The 6" Eagle can be adjusted as follows:

  • Your mounting will have an additional 30 degrees of azimuth adjustment in the Pier Adapter Slots. This will greatly speed up rough polar alignment!
  • Pier leg uneven ground adjustment range: 4" over a 36" distance, or 6.5 degrees of slope (while maintaining a minimum distance of 18" from the center of the pier to each foot)
  • Pier leg maximum spread: 48" diameter circle (maximum stability - see illustration below)

  • Pier leg minimum recommended spread: 36" diameter circle (minimum stability - see illustration below)

  • Pier height min: 24"

  • Pier height max: 36" (with legs brought in to 36" diameter circle); 32" (with legs spread to 48" diameter circle)

  • Pier height max with 8" Extension (sold separately): 44" (with legs brought in to 36" diameter circle); 40" (with legs spread to 48" diameter circle)

  • Pier measurements folded: 12" diameter x 32" length

  • Pier weight: 28 lb. (12.7 kg)
