Take manual control of your Vixen Great Polaris mount with the Vixen Slow Motion Control knob! While axis thumbscrews are great, sometimes they can be a little akward to find in the dark, or to grasp with stiff fingers when it's cold. Here's the solution...
Vixen Great Polaris Mount Slow Motion Control Knob
Just add this handy, heavy duty knob to the end of the RA and Dec shaft! They come off and on easily, but like all Vixen mount products, stay in place when you need them. No tools are necessary. It will make small manual movements very easy and precise without a cable spingling in the way!

- Easy Knobs to take on and off
These knobs are very easy to take on and off my GP2 mount. They use friction to stay on, which I prefer to the thumb-screws that never seemed to stay tightened on other slow-mo knobs I've used.

Product QuestionsHi, I need this control knob for my Helios 6 inch refractor....are they still available at all?
Thanks, Danny.Question by: Danny Bayliss on Nov 5, 2015 10:24:00 AMThese knobs are available from Vixen, but there is unfortunately no guarantee that they will fit a non-Vixen mount. If you can send us measurements of the worm shaft diameter and describe what it looks like (tapered, straight with notch cut all the way to the end, partial notch but full diameter at the end), we may be able to find a solution.Answer by: Chris Hendren (Admin) on Nov 5, 2015 11:38:00 AM
