Product Highlights
  • Telescope Tripod and Mount
  • 20 Lb Capacity

Built to support a 20 lb payload, and equipped with two fine adjustment handles for whole circle slow-motion in both directions, the Porta II Mount from Vixen comes with a sturdy set of legs that adjust from 35-51". The Porta II minimizes support-system oriented frustration when searching and tracking celestial objects.

The Porta II is solid, and its slow motion flexible handles minimize vibrations to keep the view sharp. Precision tracking of planets and ships on the horizon becomes a simple event thanks to a fine-tooth geared drive that's activated by turning the elevation or azimuth control handles.

The 'World-Standard' dovetail system ensures that the Porta II can be used to support most dovetail-mounted OTA and binoculars. The Porta II mount head is detachable and compatible with all other Vixen tripods. The tripod is constructed from rugged aluminum alloy, and the legs extend from 35-51".

      Comments about Vixen Optics Porta II Altazimuth Mount:

      I use this mount primarily for terrestial viewing and some astronomical viewing such as the moon and planets. The mount is sturdy as a rock, no shimming and shaking. I mount either a C90 or C5 onto it and it works fine and could support heavier loads if necessary. I like the idea of not having any clutches to deal with, just nudge the scope in the direction you want it and it stays there. A well made piece of gear.
