Some of our current product offerings...

TPI Manufactures tripod spreaders to stabilize and strengthen the tripod assembly.  Stock tripods by their very design are a comprimise in stability and user friendliness. We manufacture spreaders for various tripods including the Celestron CGEM, CGE and CG5, NEXSTAR, Skywatcher EQ6 and HEQ5, Orion Atlas, Meade LX200 series, LXD75 and virtually any tripod with a 2" or 1.75" diameter leg.

TPI's Tripod Leg Levelers are the ultimate accessory for your astrophotography or visual tripod. These solid aluminum levelling devices enable easy and accurate levelling of your tripod even with a full load of equipment. No more lifting your heavy rig to slide your tripod legs and lock them. A simple twist of the handle adjusts and levels your rig.

Our Leg Levelers are available for various tripods including the EQ6 and similar, CGE, CGE pro, CGEM. More information available here

TPI's NEW CGE FINE AZ ADJUSTER is the MUST HAVE upgrade for your Celestron CGE mount.

The original OEM ajuster is difficult to acheive a good polar alignment, due to its very inaccurate 1/4 turn AZ adjuster.

The NEW TPI Fine AZ adjuster modifies the motion to a 26 turn knob or low profile Allen screw for a full 20 degrees of possible adjustment. The stock adjuster is 1/4 turn for 14 degrees.

Our adjuster replaces the stock upper base disc and installs with a few allen keys and a 3/4 socket- NO DRILLING OR ALTERATION OF YOUR MOUNT IS REQUIRED.

A must for Astrophotographers and those wanting the ultimate in control and accurate polar alignment!

TPI now offers a solution to mount your Celestron CGE on a pier. This NEW Pier topper/adapter replicates the top of the CGE tripod and allows easy attachment of the electronics pier to a stationary pier or non CGE tripod. NOTE- JULY 2013 Our Pier adapter now also fits the CGE pro and CGEM/EQ6 series mounts - all in one combo pier adapter

The solid 6061-T6 construction and black anodized finish will provide many years of service. We provide 4 drilled holes and 3 holes tapped to 1/2-13 threads. Side 3/8-16 tapped holes are also provided to mount your electronics pier.

This is an ideal accessory for those who often use their tripod- but also have a solid mounted pier at an alternate viewing site.
