Easy Secure Setup:

The Sphinx SX2 Equatorial Mount can be assembled quickly. Attachment to a tripod (not included) requires only a single bolt. Both novice and veteran hobbyists will enjoy this mount's mobility, its simple to operate controller, its ability to download forthcoming upgrades straight to the controller, and the assortment of optical tubes that can be employed using Vixen's universal dovetail plate.

Unique Motor Layout:

RA and DEC motors are internally placed, allowing them to behave like a built in counterweight. Extra counterweights are not necessary for smaller telescopes.

Retractable Counterweight Shaft:

The counterweight shaft is made of rust-proof stainless steel and retracts into the Sphinx mount body for painless storage.
