Vixen Mini Porta Mount
For decades, the amateur astronomer needed to purchase a dangerously unstable mount that arguably ineffective at high-power observing. Oftentimes the frustration of using an unsteady mount would result in the telescope only being used for one night and being left in a closet to gather dust. The Porta mount changed all that. It is one of Vixen's finest 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.
The Vixen Mini-Porta comes equipped with two fine adjustment handles for whole circle slow motion in both directions, very useful in searching and tracking celestial objects. Manually point your telescope and friction holds your position. In addition, these are great mounts for terrestrial viewing. Our 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 8 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.
