A compact, transportable and fast to setup Pier for your telescope mount
A Solid base for your mount heads
The Panther Folding Pier can be used for the TTS-160 Mount head as well as many other mount heads.
Set up in just seconds.
The TTS-160 Panther Folding Pier can be set up in seconds. Just unfold the legs, place the centre pier tube and attach the three tension rods. No tools are needed and there are no loose screws or other small parts to handle in the dark.
Attach mount head with a flip of a finger
The mount head is attached to the pier with the unique Pier Adapter. Just place the mount head on top of the pier – rotate it as needed – and lock it by rotating the hand wheel.
The Pier Adapter is installed on the mount head and stays there during transport and storage.
Level the pier as needed
The TTS-160 Mount does not require that the pier is leveled. But for many other mount heads this is required. Therefore we offer a version of the Panther Folding Pier with adjustable feet. These feet can also be acquired later and installed by the user (only possible on piers produced in 2019 and later).
Observe from the darkest places – pier in one compact bag
The Panther Folding Pier has been designed for the easiest transport – no matter if it is into your backyard or remote dark sky sites. The design with no protruding parts ensures that the pier can be transported safely in a compact lightweight bag.
High-quality Danish Design
All Track the Stars piers are 100% hand-built from high-quality materials.
Every detail is carefully designed and engineered to guarantee top quality combined with elegant Danish design.
