Software Bisque MX Permanent Pier


This Software Bisque Permanent Pier is fitted for both the Paramount MX and MX+ mounts. Two steel plates have been welded to a 10” diameter steel tube to make a study permanent pier for your MX mount. The pier features a sleek, black finish and has been powder-coated on the interior and the exterior to protect the pier from corrosion. The pier comes in a variety of heights to suit your needs! See below for more information.


Paramount MX Pier Column


The pier column is .13” thick. The height of the column can be chosen from the drop-down. Generally, the following heights below are readily available from the manufacturer. Custom heights (from 10" to 60") can be ordered - feel free to inquire for estimated delivery & associated costs.



  • 12” height; weight is 42 lb.

  • 18” height; weight is 48 lb.

  • 24” height; weight is 54 lb.

  • 30” height; weight is 58 lb.

  • 36” height; weight is 64 lb.

  • 48” height; weight is 76 lb.

Paramount MX Pier Bottom Plate


The bottom plate of the Paramount Permanent Pier is made of .5” steel. It has an 11” x 11” footprint with 1” radius corners. Each corner has four slotted holes. These holes allow for approximately 10 degrees of rotation for polar azimuth adjustment. You can attach the pier to concrete with four 0.5” J-bolts. You can take a look at a drawing as well as an image of the base plate by clicking on the pictures to your left.



Paramount MX Pier Top Plate


The Software Bisque Permanent Pier Top Plate is also made of .5” steel and is slightly larger in diameter than the base plate (11.850”) to accommodate the Paramount MX base. There are mounting holes drilled in the plate for both the MX and the MX+.



How to Order the Paramount Permanent Pier



Choose your pier height from the drop-down list below, and click the "Add to Cart" text below the drop-down. The shipping shown on your order is for the 12” model, and so if you require a taller pier, your shipping charges will most likely increase. If you choose “Custom” from the drop-down, a representative from High Point will contact you to get the details and will provide you with an ETA as well as any differences in shipping and/or pier costs beyond the base price you will see on your order. Thanks!
