iOptron combined the strength and stability of a pier, with the portability and leveling flexibility of a tripod to produce their Tri-Pier; offered here with white legs and a black center column. Designed to provide a rock-solid platform for their GoTo mounts, the pier and leg tops are made of lightweight and durable aluminum, with stainless steel leg extensions. The Tri-Pier's feet have built-in vibration-suspension pads for increased stability and visual clarity. It has a payload capacity of 220 pounds to handle even the largest OTAs and accessories, with an adjustable height from 31.5 to 42.5" and an uneven ground range of 3.35" (8.5cm). It folds up into a relatively compact 26 x 12.8" package, and the legs store inside the pier.
To safely store and transport the TriPier, iOptron provides a wheeled carrying case. This piece of luggage features sturdy nylon wheels on one end with a hinged molded handle on the opposite end, and dual side carrying straps. Its top-loading lid has a zipper that opens three sides to allow it to open all the way and fold down out of the way. The areas around the wheels and pull handle are reinforced for durability and long life.
