For sale is a complete Vixen Porta II with lightweight tripod, tray, and flexible slow mo cables (these are upgraded from the stock plasticky ones that are prone to breaking). Condition is excellent with normal minor wear marks on a couple legs and the dovetail saddle from mounting telescopes. Tool set is intact.

I recently obtained a spare beat up Porta II head that I'm keeping in my grab n go bag and I'm using my Vixen APZ for light duty at home with my SXG HAL130 tripod, so this isn't seeing as much use. I've owned a few Porta IIs and will likely always keep on in my kit-- they are wonderful mounts.

The Porta II are perfect for compact, faster refractors. This combination will handle up to a Televue 101 4" APO or something like 4" f/7 and faster doublet, or 80-90mm solar scope. It will also handle smaller 6" and under SCT. This tripod is incredibly light making it perfect for traveling, but its light weight does limit it to scopes with shorter moment arms, such as the ones I listed. The Porta II head is capable of handling heavier and longer scopes, but may need a heavier tripod for those.

This will ship in two packages, which should greatly reduce the shipping costs for east coast buyers.

$176 + Actual Shipping USA. Paypal accepted.
