What mount is this?


Recommended Posts

Super Polaris! It's a great mount that will run rings around the cheap Chinese mounts. If it has a weakness its the tripod, although the Vixen tripods are also better built than the Chinese stuff. On a solid pier the SP will carry a Tak FS128, or a Meade 127 triplet without breaking into a sweat.

These Vixen mounts have in the past been the mount of choice by some Newtonian manufacturers to carry some quite large aperture reflectors. Very capable on a sturdy tripod or pier!
