Astrotrac Portable Pier TP3065
The elegant AstroTrac TP3065 is the ultimate in portable piers created specifically for astrophotographers on the move.
Rigid yet lightweight, the TP3065 provides the ideal platform for your AstroTrac tracking mount and wedge.
Uniquely, the patent pending TP3065 collapses down and packs inside itself, making it easy to carry in the specially designed shoulder bag.
Compact and lightweight
The Astrotrac Portable Pier gives you the solid platform you need for trail free images.
The aerospace grade aluminum main column is held rigidly upright by three stainless steel tension cables.
It takes just a few seconds to hand tighten the tension cables using the specially designed AstroTrac stainless steel tensioners.
If you need additional stability, simply fill your pier with sandbags, stones or the AstroTrac water bag.
Pack and go
You'll love the way the pier's legs and your TT320X pack away into the provided leg roll which in turn packs away inside the main pier column, together with your wedge and polar scope. The result is easy to carry 6" diameter tube which can easily be stowed on the back seat of your car or carried on an airplane.
Protect your wedge
The TP3065 provides the perfect protection for your AstroTrac TW3100 Wedge whilst traveling. Leave your wedge attached to the pier top plate, flip it upside down so it's safely inside the pier, and secure the top plate onto the pier.
Flexible mounting options
The top mounting plate comes pre-drilled ready to attach your AstroTrac TW3100 Wedge, Manfrotto 410 Geared head, or other mount.
Built-in cable management
Conveniently located holes in the top and bottom plates allow you to pass your USB data and 12 V power cables through the pier preventing tangling.
Expedition tested under real conditions
You don't need to worry about leaving your pier out overnight thanks to the all aerospace grade aluminum, stainless steel, and brass construction.
The anodized aluminum top plate and leg stubs are wear resistant and the main column is powder coated for maximum toughness.
Take rough terrain in your stride
Leveling your TP3065 is made easy with individually adjustable feet. A large thumbwheel makes it effortless to adjust each foot in and out even when fully loaded.
For added security, you can lock each foot in position by tightening the locking screw in the top of the foot.
