Vixen AP Alt-AZ Mount W/ TL 130 Aluminum Tripod
The Advanced Polaris (AP) Alt-AZ Mount W/ TL 130 Aluminum Tripod by Vixen:
One of Vixen's newest mounts, the Vixen AP Alt-AZ Mount is built on the Advanced Polaris Mount, and Vixen describes it as 'An Alt-AZ that grows with you'! With a load capacity of 18-pounds, this mount is ready for use with most reasonably-sized telescopes without much issue. The mount itself is a relatively simple to use, friction controlled, slow motion Alt-Azimuth mount that is fully capable of being motorized and used with the Starbook One, if you are willing to invest a bit into it! All of this is mounted on a solid aluminum tripod that guarantees stability with its high-quality craftsmanship.

Great service and great mount
I am extremely happy with this mount. It is the perfect "grab and go" mount for my SV102 refractor. I had been using another, less expensive, mount but was always frustrated with its vibration and inferior slow motion controls. This mount is steady and has extremely smooth controls.
