PierTech 2 – Electric Height Adjustable Pier – a game-changer for any observatory
I have used this pier with great satisfaction since buying it new in 2005. I really believe in this product, and have two PierTech 3s. I couldn’t do this hobby without them. They make it possible to observe all night long because your stamina is not dissipated in dealing with uncomfortable viewing positions.
This adjustable pier means that you can observe and image in far more comfort and convenience. You can see objects low in the sky while standing, and objects high in the sky while seated. No more awkward bending or ladders. For visual observers, you can observe without straining, for longer. For imagers, your equipment is always at a convenient height.
I’m writing to extend my deepest gratitude to you for creating such a life-changing device (Telescoping pier) and for sending the top plate. Tonight, I was able to photograph Comet Neowise because your pier let me raise the scope up above my observatory wall to view to western horizon. I could not stop smiling, and my wife was amazed at the elegance of raising my scope and mount with a button touch. Thank you, thank you.
Above is the photo I took tonight of Comet Newwise.
With great appreciation for your work,
