Vixen Optics Mini PORTA overview

  • 1Description

Support your smaller optical tube assembly with the highly portable and lightweight Vixen Optics Mini Porta Manual AZ Mount. Built with an adjustable-tension friction-control system, there are no clumsy axis locks or clutches to manipulate, so the mount can be easily moved by hand for fast navigation. For more precise movement, the mount has dual-axis slow-motion knobs that allow for easy and smooth tracking. The mount comes with an aluminum tripod that adjusts from 28 to 50" to accommodate a wide variety of users and viewing positions, with a center tray that adds stability to the legs while offering a place for eyepieces, filters, and other accessories. Weighing just 6 pounds including the tripod, but with a payload capacity of 8 pounds, this mount is ideal for smaller optical tube assemblies (OTAs) less than 4.7" (11.9cm) in diameter.
