We are pleased to offer, not one, but three different options for transporting and storing various piers and tripods that we offer. This is a description of the largest case ideal for an ATS 8” x 42” or shorter Portable Pier, then this is the case for you! Fold your pier and leave the Tray Support Bars (TRAYSB and TRAYSB1) attached…you’re ready to go!
If you wish to carry the Eagle Pier in its fully extended configuration with an optional 8" Extension (EAGLE6E8) attached, then you can fit it in this case as shown. You can even leave the Control Box Adapter (CBAPT) and Pier Tray Support Bars (TRAYSB and TRAYSB1) attached.
The Berlebach Planet Tripod with Tripod Adapter (AWTBER2) for the Mach1 will also fit comfortably and safely in this case.
The 42” case, like its longer and shorter versions, provides excellent protection for your very expensive piers and tripods. It adds convenience when carrying and packing your gear.
These attractive, padded-nylon carrying cases are very durable. They provide your tripods and piers with the protection it needs to look new for many years to come. They have a Velcro grip closure on the handles, as well as loops for attaching a shoulder strap (not included). Handholds are also stitched into both ends of the cases for easy handling.
The lightweight cases are solidly constructed in the USA. They are covered with a black colorfast "ballistics material" that is puncture and abrasion resistant. Furthermore, this material is water resistant and fire retardant. Protect your investment with these cases.
Dimensions: 50.5" x 11" x 11" (I.D.), 52" x 12" x 12" (O.D.)
Weight: 6.25 lb. (2.8 kg)
If this case does not meet your needs, you may wish to consider these alternatives:
32” Case (C0031)
42” Case (C0042)
Choosing the proper length case is important for visual observing at Star Parties and Public Outreach Events. Being able to simply unfold the pier when setting up and to fold up the pier when breaking down at the close of the event will mean that you will no longer be the “last man standing" in an open dark field at night while everyone else has packed up and left for the night.
