PIER-TECH : INDEX OF TELESCOPE PIERS
Pier-Tech, Inc. was established for the purpose of making fixed and portable Piers that can accept astronomical German Equatorial or Fork Mounts or other instruments. In time they expanded their production to develop astronomical observatories with slide-off roof, and most recently in 2008 they expanded production to include observatory domes for use by professional and home astronomical observatories.
Company Seven became aware of this developing company because of their increasing selection of roll-off roof observatories and telescope piers. Initially we recommended Pier-Tech Piers as among the best choice because they excellent design, quality of construction, and choices:
Pier models include we will soon provide links to allow you to see and read about each model:
Pier-Tech also makes the Latiwedge, a fixed angle equatorial wedge to facilitate precise Pole Alignment of Fork Mounted telescopes and other equipment atop their Piers. The Latiwedge telescope pier wedge is custom made specifically for the customer's latitude. So unlike other telescope pier wedges that can be adjusted in latitude, Latiwedge eliminates the guess work on whether your wedge is truly set at the correct angle. Fine adjustments for azimuth are included, while adjustments for tilt and leveling are performed on the Pier, or for dramatic relocation by changing Latitude Risers too.
We invite you to contact Company Seven to learn more about our Pier-Tech products. Furthermore, we can provide as much support as you may need including: consulting and sales, facility preparation (foundation work, utilties, permits), construction, systems integration, and operator training.
