About this product

Model:  vixen_ap_mount
Part Number:  79972

The new AP mount is effectively a replacement for the venerable GP2 - a lightweight, portable EQ mount that can be upgraded with motors and manual or GOTO controller. Where it differs from the GP2 is in its modular design.

This is the manual model which features manual R.A and DEC axis both of which can be motorised using the upgrade motor modules available separately.

As shown in the diagram below, it can be broken down into various parts. This allows the mount to be used in a variety of different ways.
