Hello.
Is this tripod ready to use directly with Advanced Polaris in AltAz mode or I need some adapter for it?
Thanks

Yes it will fit. The SXG-HAL130 is shown in this Vixen catalog as an optional tripod for the Advanced Polaris mount. See page 12:

It sounds as if you have the Alt/Az Advanced Polaris, the APZ. If it fits the AP it will fit the APZ, as both have the same fitment to the tripod hub. So the APP-TTL130, the SXG-HAL130, and the new carbon fibre ASG-CB90 will fit, although for some the ASG-CB90 may be overkill.

 

I just received my APZ/TTL130 last week and I had been considering the SXG-HAL130 and the ASG-CB90 as a replacement for the TTL130. Although after using it under the stars two nights ago, the TTL130 isn't as bad as I thought it would be with my TV Genesis on it.

Thank you Grant for your answer.
I have bought my AP without tripod. I wanted to use it with my NEQ6pro tripod but ...
And shaking refractor makes me crazy :)
