Vixen Mini-Porta Altazimuth Mount


For so many years the beginning astronomer was forced to buy a mount that was unstable and almost useless when viewing at high power. More often than not, the frustration of using an unstable mount resulted in the telescope only being used for one night and being left in a closet to collect dust. The Porta Altazimuth Mount changed all that. It is one of Vixen's proudest designs. The combination of smooth movement, rigid design and stable platform makes your first use a pleasure and will bring you back to view more and more of the night sky.

Clear Skies, Mr StarGuy

 

The Vixen Mini-Porta altazimuth mount 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, this is a great mount for terrestrial viewing. Fine gear drives make it a simple matter to precisely track a planet or a ship on the horizon by simply turning the elevation and or azimuth control handles. This sturdy observing base weighs just 6 lbs but will hold scopes up to 10 lbs. The “World-Standard” dovetail attachment system on the Mini PORTA was developed by Vixen. This allows the Mini PORTA to accept various dovetail mounted optical tubes and binoculars.
