Shorten the setup when you are imaging. Shorter = more stability.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text

How do you guys get away with a 30" Pier? Both my Eagle Pier and my ATS Portable Pier are 48". I just can't see or physically do getting down on my hands and knees to view the EP at or near the zenith. Granted the 48" tall ATS is very tall considering the height of the 1100 GTO. I find myself spreading the legs more on the ATS than on the Eagle to comfortably lift the head up to the piers base.
