One of the top selling mounts in the world of astronomy! The PORTA II mount from Japanese telescope supplier Vixen is an affordable yet extremely capable altazimuth mount for both new telescope users and seasoned hobbyists. An altazimuth mount allows the user to move the optical instrument in both x- and y-axes. PORTA II's revolutionary design allows you to swing a telescope in both vertical and horizontal directions while maintaining its alignment with simple friction. It is simple friction which holds the axes in the final position. Comes with a tripod with aluminum adjustable legs.

Two slow motion controls along both horizontal and vertical directions allow you to track moving objects in the night sky with ease, which is very useful at high magnification. The PORTA II mount is also a great choice for nature watchers as birdwatching scopes or huge telephoto lenses with DSLR cameras can be attached with an optional PORTA Multi-Plate. 

The PORTA II mount comes with the famous Vixen dovetail attachment system which has now become the world standard that most major telescope manufacturers adopt. So this allows attachment of ANY telescope with a dovetail mounting design.

This PORTA II mount version comes with a strong tripod which allows stable views at high magnification! A delight to use with small to mid-sized telescopes/spotting scopes of not more than 5kg. 

Select this Sky-Watcher AZ4 Mount instead if you have a refractor which is more than 100mm  or a catadioptric model which is more than 6"!

PORTA II has unique features not normally found in other altazimuth mounts. Please ignore the section below on the aluminum tripod as this version comes with a 1.5" stainless steel tripod.
