I just got my new Vixen Porta bracket, pan handle and large eyepiece tray from Manny and I could not be anymore happier. I am very impressed with the craftsmanship and what fine work he did. For those who own the Vixen Porta and have considered upgrading, this is one upgrade you should definitely consider.

Here are some pictures of the newly modified mount:
