Pier-Tech Inc. has been providing astronomy products since 1999. We began our adventure with providing the astronomy community revolutionary products such as our patented height adjustable piers, the PT2, PT3, PT4 and TP2. A few years later, we developed our Tele-Station roll off roof observatories TS2, TS3, TS5 and TS6 that have features not found in any other roll off roof observatory available. We also offer a Mobile Observatory, the Star Traveler mobile observatory. We are the only observatory manufacturer to offer this product worldwide. Our latest product that we have developed is a high quality all metal observatory dome, the PTD1 and PTD2. Our dome has features and design enhancements not found in other manufactured all metal domes. Designed 100% with 3D software, our domes meet the highest quality standard for fit and finish between components. Because Pier-Tech Inc. can offer both roll off roof observatories and dome observatories, we can provide a complete solution for observatory projects, either amateur or professional.
