Vixen GP2 Equatorial Mount w/Porta II Head & HAL SXG Tripod
Proving that the goals of stability and portability are not mutually exclusive in a German equatorial mount , the GP2 mount's aluminum die-cast body is strong and light. Accurate tracking is accomplished with dual 144-tooth aluminum worm wheels and a brass R.A. worm gear machined to better than 0.002-mm tolerance. All R.A. and declination worm gears are individually inspected before assembly.
This mount comes fully equipped: bubble-level, fine adjustment knobs for altitude/azimuth, and 3.7-kg (8-lb) counterweight are standard. Motors on each axis make this system complete for visual observation and tracked astro photography. Smooth Accurate The GP2 is an excellent choice for observers who want a simple, yet sturdy mount, with the ability to grow.
Vixen Porta II Head Features...
The Vixen Porta II Head comes equipped with two fine adjustment handles for whole circle slow motion in both directions, very useful in searching and tracking celestial objects. In addition, these are great mounts for terrestrial viewing. The "World-Standard" dovetail attachment system on Porta II was developed by Vixen. This allows the Porta II to accept various dovetail mounted optical tubes and binoculars.
