The Tri-Pier1 can be converted to a permanent height adjustable pier by removing adjustment feet from legs. No need to remove the legs. Just fold them in. So if an observatory is in your future or if you are looking for a pier that can be used both in an observatory permanent setting and at your favorite star party, then the Tri-Pier1 is the pier that will adapt to your needs. The Tri-Pier1has a gas assisted leg opening. This feature aids in opening the legs and allows the legs to open to the same position, so if you place it in the same place and in the same orientation, on your viewing platform, you won't have to re-level the pier.
