    Vixen Porta II Altazimuth Mount Head


    The Vixen Porta II Head comes equipped with two fine adjustment handles for whole circle slow motion in both directions, very useful in searching and tracking celestial objects. In addition, these are great mounts for terrestrial viewing. The "World-Standard" dovetail attachment system on Porta II was developed by Vixen.

    • I have an old Celestron tripod (ca 1981) that came with a C8/wedge. It has a hole in the middle of a flat top. Can this mount head attach to the Celestron tripod?

      If you get a 3/8ths screw that is long enough for the bottom of the tripod, you should do just fine. You might need a nut for the part of the screw that goes under the tripod and a washer for the part that goes in between the tripod & the mount head so th

    • Hi,would theused tele vue g11 Mounting adapter cost too much too ship to the UK? Ray

      Shipping costs will vary based on the exact location and the method of shipping you choose. If you would like to see all of the shipping options, you can add the item to your cart and enter your postal code and all of the options will be noted.

    • Hi. Will this adm v dovetail fit my meade Lx 90 8" OTA?

      Yes, this plate will fit an 8" LX90 OTA.

    • Hi. Will this mount fit on any photo tripod that has a standard 3/8 in bolt? Thanks, Stan

      Unfortunately, this item will not work with a standard photo tripod. Although the center bolt attachment is a 3/8-16, the base is not flat. Unlike a standard photo head, it will be a lot more wobbly.

    • Could this head be mounted to a Celestron AVX tripod ???

      Unfortunately, no. The base of the Porta Mount head is a different configuration to the AVX tripod and they are not compatible with each other.

    • Can this head be mounted on an Orion StarSeeker IV tripod ???

      Unfortunately, no. The base of the Porta Mount head is a different configuration to the Orion StarSeeker tripod and they are not compatible with each other. This head needs to be mounted on a Vixen tripod.

    • Will this head fit on a CG-4?

      Unfortunately, no. Celestron and Vixen do not share the same tripod mounting plate dimensions, so this head will only fit on an appropriate Vixen brand tripod.
