iOptron Tri-Pier

In astrophotography, a solid mount is key.  But you don’t want something that is too heavy that can’t be transported to your favorite spot away from light pollution.  iOptron has released a Tri-Pier combines the stiffness of a pier with the portability of a tripod.  It can be used with their mounts, or with proper adapter to other makes.  With 220lbs of maximum capacity, this can hold some serious gear.  I can’t even think up 220lbs of astro-gear!
