The PORTA II Mount for stargazing is a bestseller internationally, however some customers do not fancy the original Aluminum tripod supplied with it. This is due to poor stability and vibration issues, especially when observing at high magnification. By allowing the mount head to mate with stable and vibration-damping tripods like wooden or carbon fiber tripods, the overall performance of the PORTA II Mount is improved tremendously! 

 PORTA mounted to a Manfrotto tripod. Long flexible control cables, telescope, etc. shown are optional items. User comments: "It worked perfectly and was a big improvement over the standard tripod that comes with the Porta II Mount!" 

This kit consists of the following items only: 1 PORTA II mount head, 2 short rigid control knobs, 2 Allen keys in hidden compartment and 1 tripod adapter.

The McGill PORTA kit allows the mount head to be used in conjunction with any standard professional camera or video tripod with 3/8" screw threads.

In addition, this is a great mount for terrestrial viewing. With no locks or clutches, the hidden gear drives make it a simple matter to precisely track a ship on the horizon by turning the elevation and/or azimuth control handles. The Porta II Mount Head features slow motion control of both axes and a central bolt opening for easy change of any standard astronomical tripod.

When used with an optional McGill L-Bracket, a camera with long telephoto lens or a pair of binoculars can be easily attached to the Mount Head to suit a variety of usage. Very versatile kit indeed!

This Porta II Mount Head may be used directly with a Vixen HALSXG or Skypod Tripod. 

Comes with McGill Standard 1-Year Warranty for peace of mind.

How to install the tripod adapter: Remove the original black adapter plate at the base of the mount. Open the rubber top cover of the mount and take out the bigger Allen key. Use it to remove the 3 screws and put these aside first. Attach the supplied 3/8" tripod adapter by re-installing the 3 screws,  at the same locations.
