The Vixen SXD2 mount comes with Star Book Ten controller for manual or computer controlled observation or astrophotography.

A ‘deluxe’ version of the SX2 mount platform, the SXD2 is based around the same compact, lightweight design of the SX2. To provide even higher levels of stability and tracking accuracy, this latest update to the SXD platform includes a number of upgraded components.

The SXD2 has a higher payload capacity than the SX2 at 15kg (33lb).

Product Features:

  • Smooth & accurate tracking motion
    The mount has high quality bearings on the RA and DEC axes to reduce load on the motors and to make the motion of the axes as smooth as possible. When the mount is well-aligned and used in conjunction with a third party autoguider, it offers exceptional tracking performance with the heaviest of astro imaging payloads.
  • High grade materials
    The high grade steel chassis provides stable and accurate RA and DEC axes. The placement of the motors in the lower part of the mount casing allows them to form part of the counterweight package, reducing the need to add additional counterweights to balance the scope.
  • High quality worm gear
    The all-new brass worm gears allow smooth movement through the whole 360° motion of the mount. Combined with the latest high-performance stepper motors, the SXD2 offers the keen amateur astrophotographer the perfect platform for long exposure imaging.
  • Polar axis scope
    An internal polar axis scope is supplied as standard, mounted in the RA body. A variable intensity illuminator is pre-installed in the mount to evenly illuminate the alignment reticle in the polar axis scope. Vixen’s excellent reticle design and precise RA axis/polar scope alignment makes precision polar alignment quick and simple.
