Equipped with two fine adjustment handles for whole-circle slow-motion control on both axes, the Vixen Mobile Porta AZ Mount comes with a sturdy tripod that adjusts from 28 to 51" to accommodate a wide variety of users and viewing positions. As the name suggests, the Mobile Porta is optimized for travel with a folding fork-arm design and its ease of use helps to minimize the common support-system-oriented frustration often experienced when searching for and tracking celestial objects.

It has an 8-pound payload capacity for smaller telescopes like refractors and Maksutov-Cassegrains, and is recommended for optical tube assemblies (OTAs) with a diameter of 119mm (4.6") or less for safe use. Its friction control system allows you to move the mount by hand without fumbling with locks or clutches and stays in place when it's released, and its slow-motion handles enable fine position adjustments while minimizing vibrations.

Optimized for Mobility

  • 8-pound payload capacity
