This new and portable GoTo travel mount uses the modified Vixen Star book S hand controller that offers the same practical user concept of the Vixen Sphinx controller. A display shows a map of the sky so that you always know where you are. You can take it off the Vixen VMC 110L Telescope for remote control, but you can always put it back for save storage and transport. This means that for transport you can avoid all the separate small parts that are otherwise easily lost. Because the Sky Pod it is based on Vixen 's flexible mounting system, a wide variety of telescopes will easily and quickly attach to this mount. Skypod provides good portability combined with ease of use and versatility. You can store the telescope mount and the Vixen telescope separately. For airline traveling you can take the VMC110L along as carry-on luggage while the mount goes with the rest of your luggage.
