Founded in 1949, Vixen Co. Ltd has been Japan’s leading manufacturer of Astronomical Telescopes, Mounts and Accessories for over 60 years. Responsible for the introduction of the popular GO-TO Controller and ‘world standard’ Dovetail Mounting System, the company has been instrumental in shaping the market in which it has operated both under its own name and as an OEM supplier to some of the world’s big astronomical equipment brands.
With a wide range of often cross-compatible equipment designed and manufactured for astronomers at every level, choosing a Vixen set-up means you can stay with the brand as your hobby develops, mixing and matching tubes and mounts according to the type of observing you want to do.
When you compare Vixen products to others, the difference is clear. The quality and workmanship is there to see no matter whether you are in the market for a lightweight grab-and-go Porta II altazimuth mount for a few hundred pounds or a high performance SXD equatorial mount at a few thousand.
Vixen's Mobile Porta altazimuth mount at only 2.4kg (including tripod) is the lightest weight and most affordable mount in the range.
