This Flat Pier Plate (1612FP) has been machined to the specifications of the Advanced Telescope System (ATS) 10” pier. It is sized to fit directly into the pier without modifications and provide a mounting surface for our 10” Flat Surface Adapter (1612FSA) (previously 1200FSA). It will add 0.75” to the height of the pier.
This adapter has a 10 mm threaded hole and attaches to the bottom of the MECA or MEC2 column. This will enable you to mount your column to a tripod that uses a Metric 10 mm bolt, such as the Celestron CG5 tripod bolt.
