Software Bisque unveils its new Pyramid Portable Pier ($1,700). Weighing only 20 pounds (9 kg), the pier is designed to mate with the company’s new Paramount MX Robotic Telescope Mount (reviewed in last July’s issue, page 64). The pier’s tubular leg design is capable of supporting up to 250 pounds, and its mounting base can rotate a full 360°. Raised leveling-adjustment knobs allow you to find horizontal position without crouching, and the pier feet swivel to conform to uneven terrain. The Pyramid Portable Pier also includes a center tray to hold accessories.
