The Vixen Sphinx SXP Equatorial Mount with Tripod and Star Book One is an innovative equatorial mount engineered to accommodate a 35 lb payload capacity. Two features make this mount stand apart from other manufacturer's equatorial mounts within the same price bracket; the mount design and the Star Book One hand controller. The forward-thinking design uses the body of the mount as part of the counterweight system, enabling smoother motion and less additional counterweight.Controlling the rig is the Star Book One (SB1) computer, which helps you find, observe, and track celestial objects. Since near and deep sky objects appear to move at different speeds, the SB1 features celestial, solar, lunar, and King's rate tracking speeds. An integrated autoguider port adds to the mount's usability.The HAL 130SXG is an adjustable height tripod that allows the user to set the position of the telescope to their liking for easy and comfortable viewing. The top of the tripod, where the mount attaches, is powder-coated for a durable finish that resists flaking and fading. The tripod is also collapsible for convenient storage and portability.
