Designed as a basic equatorial mount for beginners or as a simple grab-and-go option for more experienced enthusiasts, Vixen Optics' AP Advanced Polaris EQ Mount is engineered to be customized as your needs demand. Offered here in its bare-bones configuration, it will serve well as a conventional equatorial mount with competent 13.2 lb payload capacity, adjustment dials for the altitude and azimuth axes, and a counterweight and shaft. A clutch-less friction-control system allows the mount to be quickly moved to your target by simply pointing the OTA where you want it with your hands

An array of optional accessories are available separately so you can tailor the mount to your specific needs including: a right ascension motor and Star Book One hand controller kit, declination motor, Polar alignment scope, and Polar meter. The mount head is offered here without a tripod or OTA.
