This latest series of Sphinx computerised mount from Vixen of Japan, SXD2, is equipped with gear wheels made of brass and specially designed thrust bearings for a loading capacity of 15kg while keeping smooth motion of the RA and DEC axes. It is highly recommended for any level of users who wish to enjoy both visual observation and astrophotography.

The control panel of SXD2 mount, STAR BOOK TEN, comes with a high definition colour LCD display and is easy to operate even for beginners. It is the same hand controller used in the high-end AXD mounts from Vixen. STAR BOOK TEN is even praised as the most advanced stand-alone "Star Chart GOTO" hand controller in the world! TEN in Japanese means "The Heavens" and this setup will be at the pinnacle amongst its class! 

The SXD2 mount is made in Japan. Comes with a sturdy aluminium tripod SXG-HAL130 which is designed to minimize warping and provides a stable yet portable setup. The supplied Half Pillar adds a little over 20cm of height to the SXD2 mount, increasing comfort for observing and allowing longer optical tubes to be used. It is also a necessity to use the Half Pillar to prevent the counterweight shaft of the SXD2 from colliding with the tripod legs when used near the Equator.

Power source of SXD2 mount (not included in this package): 8x D-size alkaline batteries or portable 12V Power Supply SG1000SX from Vixen.
