The Matrix NOMAD 10 from Matrix Astro Products is a portable extension pier that features a high 300lb. lifting weight yet only weighs 35lbs. and has a remote control 10-inch motorized height adjustment.
As the company notes, “All moving elements use precision linear ball bearing slides with hardened and ground guide rails. This level of precision guarantees the smoothest & sturdiest possible transmission of the moving stage at any height extension.”
The components of the Matrix NOMAD 10 are designed and precision machined from aircraft grade aluminum and powder coated in white with optional custom colors on request with no additional charge.
The tripod legs are easily folded up for transporting in the supplied carry case. It offers ease of use as no tools are required to manually adjust leveling to a very fine degree. The standard top plate has many bolt hole patterns to accommodate various popular mounts and optional custom top plates are available.
