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.

PORTA II mount is a delight to use with small to mid-sized telescopes/spotting scopes of not more than 5kg. It is also very lightweight and portable.
