Re: Portable piers - ATS or PWT Pinnacle
Hi,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Yes I did consider the Pinnacle. It is beautiful. It has more leveling capability than the other solutions, so if you will be imaging in spots where the terrain is severely sloped, you may need it; otherwise, there is no difference from the perspective of the load carrying or stability considerations. If money were no object, I would opt for the Pinnacle, however, the ATS is more than sufficient. Another other thing I like about the ATS and that is the ability to accomodate the AP trays. They fit perfectly and I always use them. I love those trays. Finally, the ATS dissasembles very quickly and allows you to maintain the leveling settings when stored. I use my AP 900 ATS on a granite rock all the time. It is not level, so I have my legs adjusted and spots marked on the rock. I set up the pier in less than 2 minutes and polar allignment takes 10 secs to 1 minute as the mount ends up nearly identicle to where I left it the previous month!
Good luck with your choice.
