Vixen ED115S Refractor & Sphinx SXP Mount with Starbook 10
Vixen combines a 115mm ED refractor optical tube with the Sphinx SXP EQ mount for a perfect imaging set up. The ED115S's extra-low dispersion optical glass virtual elminates false color and maximizes light transmission. The Sphinx SXP is a smart equatorial mount with a load capacity of 35 pounds allowing it to easily carry the 115mm optical tube and any imaging gear you might choose with ease. Large precision gears offer a smooth and accurate ride.
About the ED115S Refractor Optical Tube

About the Sphinx SXP EQ Mount
Decades of EQ mount design experience have gone in to the creation of the SXP mount. A unique offset design lets the body of the mount head act as part of the counterweight system, reducing the need for as many additional counterweights when compared to traditional EQ mounts. Large, 180 teeth gears enable fluid precision movement with minimal backlash.
About the Starbook 10 Controller
Included with the SXP EQ mount is Vixen's innovative Starbook 10 controller. Featuring a gorgous full color, large LCD screen, the Starbook 10 contains an extensive catalog of over 270,000 objects so no matter what your location or desired target you're sure to find it. Other convenience features include a night-vision mode for the screen, brightness control, glowing control buttons, hibernate control, and bilingual options. Adding to the mount's gear accuracy, the Starbook 10 controller also provies backlash compensation, automated Go-To functions, and lunar, sideral, solar, artificial sattelite and comet tracking modes, virtual and permanent PEC.
