Vixen Porta II Alt-azimuth Mount w/ Tripod - ES39951-SO

Porta II Altazimuth Mount boasts a very high sturdiness and stability and is a beginner's mount dedicated to offer the ease of use and high performance.

A user feels less stress when observing with this mount and can prepare for observation easily.

This is a recommended mount for a wide range of users from those using an astronomical telescope for the first time to veteran observers.



  • Slow Motion Handles: The whole-circle slow motion movement of the PORTA II provides smooth telescope operation at every pointing angle. Handle positions of both vertical and horizontal slow motion controls can be altered in 45-degree increments. This allows a comfortable posture while using the slow motion handles for various size optical tubes.
  • Dovetail-Plate Attachment: With Vixen's renowned dovetail-plate system, many optical tubes, up to 160mm in outer diameter, can easily be swapped on and off the mount.
  • Accessory Tray: An accessory tray holds small pieces such as a camera or eyepieces. Very useful when observing at night.
  • Compartment for Tools: Slow motion handles positions and the amount of friction on the axes are adjusted with tools located in the compartment under the rubber covering. You will always have your tools available.
  • Detachable Tripod System: The mount head and tripod are detachable by single fixing bolt which makes it convenient for transport and storage.
  • Friction Control System: Optical tube can be moved freely by hand and the friction holds its position anywhere you stop it. It allows you to manually point the telescope at target celestial objects you wish to view.
