Pier-Tech 2 - 120V Electro-Mechanical Telescope Pier

The PT2 allows use of only one pier, since you could raise or lower the pier when switching between different styles of telescopes. When looking high near the zenith, you don't need to strain your back by crouching down to look thru the eyepiece, just simply push the button on the hand pendant to raise the eyepiece to your eye, while still keeping the telescope level and polar aligned GUARANTEED. Best of all, target stays in the field of view!

In observatory applications, use the PT2 or PT3 to raise the telescope above the observatory wall, to view astronomical objects near the horizon. It can also be controlled via your personal computer or controlling server, with the addition of Auto-Pier software and hardware.

To operate the Pier-Tech 2, just plug it into a standard 220V outlet, push the up or down button on the supplied hand held pendant to raise or lower the pier. (Don't have power in your observatory? You can also operate it thru an inverter.) The pier has 20 inches of precision vertical adjustment keeping your telescope polar aligned and level. Guaranteed or your money back!.
