The Vixen SPHINX SXW mount and STAR BOOK hand controller are groundbreaking advancements in high speed, portable GOTO mount technology.
Easy Secure setup. The Sphinx Mount sets up in minutes. One bolt secures it to the tripod.
Beginners and seasoned hobbyists will benefit from the portability of the mount, the easy to use controller, the ability to download future upgrades directly to the controller and the versatility of placing a variety of optical tubes on this equatorial mount with Vixen's universal dove tail plate.
The Sphinx SXW features high speed and precise automatic slewing, sturdy aluminum tripod, retractable counterweight shaft, and build in motors. Includes one 1.9kg counterweight.
The STAR BOOK is the most advanced astronomical hand controller available and is recommended for anyone interested in exploring the night sky.
The innovative STAR BOOK hand controller offers astronomical 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.
Features and menu options are displayed on the large color screen and are easily navigated with simple buttons on the controller. The STAR BOOK is amazingly easy to use and makes the SPHINX available to a wide range of ages and experience levels.
