Portable & Permanent Piers

We offer both portable and permanent pier setups, a range that includes some of the most rock solid options possible for telescope mounting. Electro-mechanical piers are designed for the observer who wishes to raise and lower the pier by a push of a button.  These devices are able to lift a wide variety of weight to various elevations, and they can be controlled through a laptop computer or even from a remote location.  Available in many custom heights, permanent piers are manufactured to safely carry the telescope in all orientations, and they are specifically designed for different payloads.  They are equally at home in a professional observatory or in an amateur's backyard.  Piers are meant to be durable and to withstand vibration.  They offer a solid, permanent base for your observing platform while being fully adjustable for precision polar alignment.  Some are suited for outdoor applications. They are generally perfect for use in conjunction with the observatory and dome setup equipment we offer.

Telescope piers are custom designed to specific heights and payloads.  Certain models have motorized systems to raise and lower the telescope height, and some are completely weather resistant.  Most portable pier styles can be adapted to permanent status.  Both have the capacity to become one of the favored ways of mounting your telescope.
