If you already own a Vixen Polarie Star Tracker, the upgrade kit is a great way to get more from your mount. The kit includes all components required to increase the maximum payload of the Polarie from 2kg to 6.5kg and to deliver accurate polar alignment.
A heavy-duty mounting block with Vixen-style dovetail attachment and quick release lever makes mounting and pointing larger accessories quick and simple. The mounting block has a clear central aperture that allows the polar alignment scope to be left in place after alignment.
The Dovetail Slide Bar DD enables you to quickly and easily mount and balance a DSLR with large telephoto lens using the optional counterweight bar. Alternatively, a second camera can be attached.
ATTENTION! Please note, you would also need to purchase the supplementary counterweight bar and at least one of the counterweights for the above system to work correctly, i.e. if you attach a heavy dSLR with a large telephoto lens or a small widefield refractor telescope of short focal length, you would have to counterbalance it to achieve precise tracking. See optional accessories further below.
