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.
Now includes an additional countersunk through-hole and slot. These changes provide greater mounting versatility for owners of small scopes and presents a new option for customers using the TeleVue 127mm. Can be used in the same manner as the 7" Sliding Bar (SB0800). It also provides the extra length needed to push the Traveler forward to counterbalance accessories when doing eyepiece projection.
The Rotating Pier Adapter includes two machined plates, four machined aluminum lock knobs with 5/16 x 1.5"OD flat washers, azimuth adjuster block, six 5/16-18 x 5/8" socket buttonhead screws and 5/16 x 9/16"OD x 0.060" flat washers.
