Vixen Porta II ALT-AZIMUTH Mount is designed to deliver quick and precise adjustments in vertical and horizontal directions by hand. Includes fine adjustment handles for locating and tracking celestial objects. Dovetail attachment system for maximum compatability with a wide range of optical tubes. Supplied with removable tripod for quick and easy set-up.

Product features:

  • Easy adjustment
    The optical tube can be moved freely by hand and friction holds its position anywhere you stop it. This allows you to quickly and easily point the telescope at celestial objects you wish to view.
  • Portability
    The mount can be detached from the tripod by removing a single screw making it very easy to pack and transport.
  • Simple to use
    The Porta II adjustment system offers full circle slow motion movement. Handle positions of both altitude and azimuth slow motion controls can be altered in 45˚ increments. This allows the user to set the handles for a comfortable viewing position whatever size optical tube is used.
  • Accessory tray
    The mount is supplied with a circular accessory tray for holding eyepieces and small photographic accessories.
  • Onboard adjustment tools
    Tools to adjust the tension of the friction system are housed on the mount. They are securely stored within the mount head but are quickly accessible.
