The Vixen half-pier adds 8" of height above the tripod hub. This aids is clearance of the telescope tube and the tripod legs when aiming.
These are getting harder to find.
Compatible with older Vixen Super Polaris and Great Polaris mounts.
At some point in the 2000's Vixen changed the head bottom to hub connection of the Great Polaris mount. This fits into a cup type fitting in the hub that is approximately 58mm in diameter.
The new half-pier currently sold by Vixen will not fit the older mounts directly.
This a gun-metal black, mostly sold by Celestron. Vixen sold both the the Super Polaris and Great Polaris in fun-metal green and gun-black. This will fit either color.
Condition shows some paint chipping, a common issue with some older Vixen products, and some worn paint on the tab at the top. These are purely cosmetic issues.
Otherwise this is in good condition and works.
