High performance, heavy duty, but still lightweight equatorial mount. Beautifully manufactured Japanese technology!

The Vixen SXP mount comes with Star Book Ten controller for manual or computer controlled observation or astrophotography.

Combining the best functions of the Sphinx series of mounts and of the latest Star Book GO-TO controller, Vixen has introduced a new generation of SX equatorial mount for high-performance observing and astrophotography.

The Vixen SXP mount comes with Star Book Ten controller for manual or computer controlled observation or astrophotography.

Using the same high precision stepper motors as the top of the range AXD mount, the new SXP brings a new level of performance to the mid-range Vixen mount family. The SXP is quieter and smoother in its tracking than the SX and SXD2 mounts and the increased precision of the motors allows for improved performance for long-exposure astrophotography.

 

Product Features

The new mount comes as standard with the Star Book Ten which is the latest generation Vixen handheld controller. Its high resolution screen and extensive feature set make it the perfect companion for this sturdy mount.

Stepping Motors

The SXP mount uses high-precision pulse stepper motors. Vixen's micro-step motion control makes the movement of the motors very accurate, quiet and extremely smooth.

 

The RA and DEC gear wheels have 180 teeth and are 72mm in diameter. High-precision CNC-machined brass wheels and worm gears ensure accurate tracking. The uprated RA and DEC shafts are made of carbon steel and are supported by a combination of 15 bearings.RA DEC Axes

 

As with the other mounts in the SX range, the declination body of the SXP mount acts as part of the counterweight system. This helps to reduce the amount of additional weight carried on the counterweight shaft.

The Star Book Ten controller allows for permanent periodic error correction data to be saved.

 

Polar Scope PF-LPolar axis scope
The polar scope PF-L with built-in dark field illuminator is supplied as standard with the SXP mount and is mounted in the RA body. Vixen’s excellent reticle design and precise RA axis/polar scope alignment allow for precision polar alignment. No hour angle setting is required, making set up quick and simple.
