Very stable, easy to transport, and height adjustable. (Posted on 10/6/2018)

I use this pier with my MyT, and it checks all the boxes. Stable? Check. Light and portable? Check. Adjustable height? Check. High build quality and durability? Check and check.

One caveat, I highly recommend that you also consider the pier extension if you are mounting a long OTA. The extension provides clearance to avoid OTA collisions with the legs when you're trying to get that extra sub near zenith (although TheSky does have slewing limits built in as well).
