The revolutionary Lander Pier tripods provide you with the perfect balance between stability, portability and versatility whether you are a CCD Imager, visual enthusiast or a beginner and are built for ease of use. The powered models enable you to raise or lower your telescope to a comfortable viewing/working height, whether an object is at the horizon or the zenith, at a touch of a button, with polar alignment stability throughout.
Automated Height Adjustable Stable Platform for your Mount and Scope
The Power Landers add a new dimension to your night sky observing session with their automated height leveling and assistive technology: for standing or seated viewing without having to squat or stretch, for persons of all ages, heights and disabilities at public viewing sessions, for schools, for switching between a refractor, cassegrain or a reflector telescope and for a safer and lower loading/working height. The Super Piers can be permanently mounted at your home observatory or professional research facility and remotely controlled. Polaris Precision Piers are designed for 21st Century Astronomy.
The Power Landers will transform your observing session with their automated height adjustment capability: for standing or seated viewing without having to squat or stretch, for persons of all ages and heights at star parties or public viewing sessions, for different types of telescopes and lower loading/working height. They can also be mounted and controlled in your observatory or permanent viewing site with the optional anchor plate and remote control.
The Lander's modular design is based upon a rigid central pier with an open truss high grade aluminium framework which evenly distributes the force on the pier down the legs and hydraulic locking mechanisms to form a rock-solid and stable footprint with good damping properties.
What sets our Lander range of pier/tripods apart from the crowd is a combination of mobility, load carrying capacity, effortless leveling on uneven ground and the electronic height adjustment facility.
Our innovative design offers all-terrain adaptability by utilising the precision bearing castors, anti vibration feet or the stainless steel spikes and all attach in seconds, without the use of tools.
Quality and precision without compromise.
All manufacturing is carried out by Polaris Precision Engineering in their England (U.K) engineering facility to ensure that pier/tripods are built with the necessary quality. Their engineers with many decades of experience use the latest CAD-CAM CNC and laser systems to cut, machine and anodise aircraft grade aluminium together with only the finest components from U.K, Germany and Switzerland, used in the final assembly.
