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 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-pound 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.

Intended as a complete observational platform, Vixen includes their APP-TL130 adjustable-height tripod that has an adjustable height from 20.7-45.6" to accommodate an array of users and a variety of OTA styles and sizes. 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.
