Vixen's Mobile Porta altazimuth mount at only 2.4kg (including tripod) is the lightest weight and most affordable mount in the range and is perfect for "grab and go" observing. The new multi-arm design eliminates the problem of blind spots in altitude adjustment and makes the mount more compact when being transported. 

  • Lightweight telescope mount for rapid observations
  • Built-in slip clutch and fine adjustment in the axes
  • Angle of the multi arm can be adjusted
  • Lightweight and transportable, ideal for travelling
  • Easy to use and transport
  • Includes tripod and storage tray
  • Weight: 2.4 kg

Vixen Mobile Porta is a small transportable travel mount for fast observations and does not require time-consuming installation. Thanks to the new compact and lightweight design, it is ready for use in no time and is easy to transport.

The angle of the new multi arm can be adjusted, allowing you to observe at the zenith - including with longer telescopes.

In addition to these new functions, the mount also comes with the other tried-and-tested features of the Porta series, such as a slip clutch and fine adjustment.

Easy to adjust
The telescope can be moved by hand in all directions and is held in position by a slip clutch. This allows you to adjust the telescope to your desired object with ease. 
The angle of the new multi arm can be adjusted, allowing you to observe at the zenith - including with longer telescopes. The angle of the multi arm can be adjusted in 15-degree steps. The multi arm system also enables you to collapse the mount for easy transport and storage, e.g. in the Telescope and Tripod Bag 100 (item no. 35655).

Vixen dovetail standard mount 
As with all Vixen mounts, the MOBILE PORTA mount uses the Vixen world standard dovetail adapter for the telescope connection. The MOBILE PORTA is recommended for telescopes with a maximum weight of 3.5 kg.

Accessory storage
The accessory holder features slots for your eyepieces. It can also be used to store smaller photography accessories. The holder is mounted via a centrally positioned screw.
