    Product Details

    • Designed to handle larger optical tube assemblies and heavy imaging rigs, Vixen's Sphinx SXD2 Equatorial Mount provides a precise and stable motorized mount for long observation sessions, or long-exposure astrophotography. Dual stepper motors provide smooth and virtually vibration-free tracking that run at up to 250pps. Its full-circle brass wheel gear allows the mount to track over extremely long periods with little tracking error.

      For enhanced accuracy, the SB1 features backlash compensation and Periodic Error Correction (PEC) for addressing errors that are common with any tracking system, which can otherwise lead to blurry images and star streaks, or cause objects to drift in the field of view during long observation sessions. An integrated autoguider port adds to the mount's usability; while the adjustable screen brightness preserves night-adjusted vision and a red LED utility light provides illumination for changing eyepieces and filters. For added convenience, the controller is powered by the mount, so there is no need for additional batteries or other power sources.
