Vixen Sphinx SXD2 Equatorial Mount w/ Star Book One Controller


Vixen has modified its already innovative SXD Mount to create a more solid platform for astrophotography with an even greater payload capacity. Low volume stepping motors ensure smooth slewing with fast reactions to commands.

Increased Loading Capacity:

Both the RA and DEC Axes are constructed from robust steel with brass wheel gears. This gives the mount the capacity to carry up to 50-lb. payloads with counterweights for astrophotography.

Smooth RA and DEC Movement:

The interior of the new SXD2 mount is very different from the previous SX Mounts. RA and DEC axes and screw gear shafts now feature additional bearings. Smooth movement is enabled through worm screw gears that have been polished in the whole-circle and meticulously examined for precise concentricity.

Star Book One Functions...


  • Celestial, Solar, Lunar, and King's Rate Tracking
  • Slewing speeds variable from 0.1x to 999x sidereal
  • Backlash compensation
  • Periodic Error Correction
  • Autoguider port
  • Adjustable screen brightness
  • Direction keys
  • Red LED light
