Quote:One of the numerous Vixen GP clones.
Quote:You are correct. I meant the SP not the GP. Being made in Japan it is probably one of the better mounts and may in fact be a Vixen, although I would expect some marking. The biggest drawback with the mount is the lack of what is now a standard saddle. For that I would probably not bother with it.
I lost count of my scopes. Now I just want mobility. I came, I saw, I bought some interesting accessories, and put names to faces: NEAF 2012, ASAE 2012, SWAP 2013, ASAE 2013.

Quote:I can verify it's a Vixen Super Polaris. The square flange between RA and DEC gives it away.
I tried out two of them. Both turned out to have bent RA shafts. No idea how that happens to them. Nice mounts in every other way.
