The New Mobile Porta is a variation of Vixen's award winning Porta II Mount. This mount is easier to transport due to its unique multi function fork arm which allows the Mobile Porta to fold much more compactly than its predecessors. At less than 8 pounds this mount is ready to go to all your observing sites.
Your telescope can be moved manually to the right position and then fine tuned with the slow motion controls. The multi function single fork arm folds without the use of tools for easy transport and storage. Setting up your scope in minutes is a simple operation.
The direction of the multi arm can be rotated at an of of 15 degree intervals so that you avoid having the telescope impeded by the slow motion handles. Additionally, the vertical slow motion control can move outward.
The Mobile Porta includes all the features of the original Porta II mount such as slow motion handles, friction stop system and removable mount head.
