The Next Level of Performance

The SXD2 equatorial mount PFL is a high precision, sturdy mount. The cutting edge STAR BOOK TEN controller features a high definition color LCD screen with intuitive operations to ensure comfortable and accurate observing.


Vixen Telescope SXD2 Mount PFL Description

  • Pulse motors and micro-step motion control system.

    The heart of the SXD2 is the precision pulse motors. These highly responsive motors use a micro-step motion control system to deliver powerful yet silky smooth drive controls in both fine motion and quick slewing.

  • Smooth R.A and Dec motion.

    Bearings are used in the R.A and Dec axes and the rotating shafts of the worm gears. This reduces the load on the motors and ensures smooth rotation. No reduction gears on the motor shaft eliminates the presence of backlash.

  • STAR BOOK TEN star chart go-to navigation controller.

    The SXD2 equatorial mount PFL comes with STAR BOOK TEN which features intuitive 'Star-Chart Go-To' system with high definition color LCD display. The position of the telescope, the target and other useful information are displayed on the screen in detail. The night vision feature illuminates the whole screen in red, if applied, and will limit the brightness to the observer's eyes.

  • Cross over meridian function.

    The function of "cross over meridian" allows you to change a timing of the reverse motion of the optical tube when your target celestial object is approaching to the culmination.

  • Advance Unit

    With the optional Advance Unit installed, the STAR BOOK TEN combined with a CCD video camera works as an advanced autoguider. On the screen you can view an image from a CCD video camera, record to or play back from a SD/SDHC memory card, and adjust the shutter exposure controls of a DSLR camera. It is highly recommended for any stargazing enthusiast from entry-level to expert.
