Description Technical Specs
 
Reg Price $399. Now $349 after instant $50 rebate. Vixen's Porta II Tall Mount is a solid alt-azimuth mount with a 20lb payload capacity and features high end slow motion knobs to track subject precisely. The extra height on this mount makes it ideal for refractors or taller individuals.

Slow motion control is very useful in searching and tracking celestial objects, or ships at sea and birds in trees. The Sky at Night Magazine says: "When moving the telescope around the sky with this mount, we found any vibrations quickly dampened down. The whole system was very stable, even when the tripod was at its maximum extended height"*. The Porta II Mount head is easily removed to allow for a switch to a heavier tripod. In addition, this is a great mount for terrestrial viewing. With no locks or clutches, the gear drives make it a simple matter to precisely track a planet or a ship on the horizon by turning the elevation and/or azimuth control handles. The World-Standard dovetail attachment system on PORTA II was developed by Vixen. This allows the PORTA II Alt-azimuth mount to accept various dovetail mounted optical tubes and binoculars.
