Vixen SXD Equatorial Mount with HAL130 Tripod 2503HAL130 Product Info

While the outsides might look similar to the standard Vixen SXD Equatorial Mount with HAL130 Tripod 2503HAL130 the changes that have happened under the hood are huge! Incorporating one piece hardened steel RA and DEC shafts with needle bearings throughout, the new Sphinx SXD Mount by Vixen can handle a load capacity up to 50 lbs. The Vixen Sphinx comes complete with PEC and the incredibly accurate SX Polar Finder Scope. Astronomers with larger optical tubes and all level of astro photographers are sure to feel right at home with the intuitive controls that so many have become accustomed to with the standard Vixen Sphinx Mount. Its 4.7" Color LCD Display gives an exact position against its scrolling star chart, any object is a point and look away! The innovative STAR BOOK hand controller offers celestial navigation with a large full-color lcd screen! The color screen is a detailed star chart that acts as a navigational and GOTO guide for the mount. Zoom-In/Out buttons for the color star chart display also control the motor speed. As you zoom in closer to an object on the display screen, the motor speed automatically becomes finer and as you zoom out the motor speed increases to cover larger distances.
