Vixen Optics 5863 Overview

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 to 51". The Porta II minimizes support-system-oriented frustration when searching for 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 optical tube assemblies (OTAs) 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 to 51".
