Since the introduction of Monolith portable telescope pier, many have asked us to develop a lower cost alternative to Monolith while still maintaining the superb quality, rigidity, strength, unique features and in general, characteristics of Monolith - we listened. We are proud to offer the "Pinnacle Support System" the result of over 18 months of design and testing.
Pinnacle Support System is a very light weight, very rigid platform (commonly referred to as telescope mount pier or tripod) for telescopes. It is fully engineered for rigidity, load carrying capacity, vibration dampening and portability. It is fully CNC machined to very tight tolerances from aircraft quality alloys such as 6061 and 7075. The tubular sections are machined from drawn tube (2x the cost of extruded tubes). All aluminum parts are hard anodized for durability and corrosion resistance. All bearings are made from composite material to afford long life and smooth operation of parts. All hardware is Stainless steel. Every effort was made to make the Pinnacle pier as light as possible while maintaining rigidity and high strength. Every effort was made to make it as maintenance free and user friendly as possible. The end result is one of the most capable, easy to use and adaptable piers ever made.
A few highlights
We designed the Pinnacle System with both the visual and ccd imagers in mind. Whether you are a visual or CCD imager, you will appreciate the easy setup, individually adjustable legs for leveling the Pinnacle on all types of terrain including uneven ground. Like Monolith, we also build-in a fine height adjustment into each foot. Pinnacle adapts to any terrain. The stability is increased by having a wide stance and a low center of gravity. The open body desing offers little resistance to wind which further increases the stability. The Pinnacle system offers our optional unique Full Index Adapter (FIA) which allows 360 degree rotation of the mount adapter. Pinnacle is engineered to offer rigid platform with quick vibration dampening and of course good looks and superb fit and finish. Proudly engineered and made in the USA .
