A great, must have addition to any observatory is our heavy duty pier. Made from steel this solid pier weighs 26kg for that stable platform which is essential when doing astrophotography.

If you are tired of lugging your heavy equipement out and setting it up every night, then save yourself the hassle with this great pier.

Comes complete with the puck for various mounts with easy adjusters to get the perfect level. It comes with 3 bolt holes for easy attachment to a base.

These are custom made so you can specify your colour. We stock the white colour which is available for shop collection. The lead time on the custom colours is around a week.


Pier Height 1.1m
Width of plate/base 200mm
Diameter of Pier 110mm
Distance between holes 143mm
Weight 26 Kg

Please note due to the weight we would prefer a shop collection on this item. We can delivery by pallet but there is a higher delivery charge for this and please allow 3 - 4 days for delivery. Please contact us for more details.

Very well built and fits the intended mount perfectly.
Sunday, 8 May 2022  | 

I've only just collected this pier, so it will be a few weeks before it is fully installed, however I've tested it with my HEQ6-PRO mount which fits on it perfectly.

A decent weight of steel, which will be very solid once it is fitted to the concrete base.

Good adjustment on the top plate to allow a perfectly horizontal base for the mount.

Will add some photos of it and further review when it is finally installed and being used...
