The Vixen GP2 is quite simply the very best small equatorial mount. An evolution of the revered Great Polaris (GP), the GP2 is a very accurate, robust platform for observation.
The GP2 can be motorised if required, and a full Starbook Type S system is available for those wishing to turn it into a GOTO mount.
Polar alignment is simple with the GP2. A straightforward look-through basic aligner is built in, with a proper polar scope available as an accessory.
The Skypod features a standard dovetail attachment - so can be used with any tube weighing up to 7kg (15.4lb).
Supplied WITHOUT a tripod - see accessories section for a the awesome HAL-130 floor tripod, and an optional half-pillar for use with refractors.
