Ultra portable yet stable observation mount

Vixen’s Mini Porta altazimuth mount is the most affordable mount in the range and is perfect for "grab and go" observing. The mount head and tripod sections are detachable for transportation and storage but the complete system can also be transported in an optional carry bag.

Using the same friction-based adjustment system as the larger Porta II mount, the telescope can be quickly moved into place by hand. Unlike some competitor models, the Mini Porta also includes slow motion handles for fine adjustment and tracking.

Product features

Easy adjustment
The optical tube can be moved freely by hand and friction holds its position anywhere you stop it. This makes quick targeting of objects fast and easy.

Vixen standard dovetail attachment
As with all Vixen mounts, the Mini Porta uses the now “world standard” dovetail mount system and will carry a payload of up 3.5kg (7.7lb). The maximum recommended tube diameter is 120mm.*

*Maximum usable tube diameter will vary depending on tube length and weight as wel as tube type.

Accessory tray
The mount is supplied with a circular accessory tray with cut-outs for eyepieces. It can also be used to store small photographic accessories. The tray attaches and detaches via a single centre-mounted screw.

Onboard adjustment tools
Tools to adjust the tension of the friction system are housed on the mount. They are securely stored within the mount head but are quickly accessible.
