About the Vixen StarGuy Altazimuth Pro Mount w/ Train-N-Track & Wood Tripod...

"Combining the best parts of various Vixen Mounts, we have created the StarGuy Alt Az Wood Mount. This easy to use mount combines quality components for superior stability. Our StarGuy Mount is a great companion to your telescope system." Clear Skies, Brian (MrStarGuy) Deis

 

The Vixen StarGuy Altazimuth Pro Mount w/ Wood Tripod features the Vixen Porta II Head on the sturdy Berlebach wood tripod. This mount has all the elements of Vixen'''s award winning Porta II Mount, Slow motion controls, Dovetail attachment and handy tool kit. We have paired this with the incredibly sturdy wood tripod that includes a wood accessory tray, telescoping legs and safety chain. This also includes 2 long slow motion handles for easy manual tracking of your target object.

 

The Vixen Train-N-Track (TNT) system for the Porta Mount is a basic alt-az motor drive system with adjustable or trainable tracking. With alt-azimuth mounts, the motor speeds will vary greatly depending on what area of the sky you are viewing. The TNT motor drive system includes adjustable speeds on both axes and high speed centering. The friction drives also allow you to move the telescope around by hand without unlocking any clutches. You just let go and the drive takes over. With a little practice, objects can be kept in the eyepiece for 10 minutes or more. The Vixen StarGuy Altazimuth Pro Mount system is battery driven using 8 AA batteries and includes complete instructions.
