About Vixen

The Vixen Optics Sphinx SXP Equatorial Mount is an innovative equatorial mount engineered to accommodate a 35lbs payload capacity. Two features make this mount stand apart from other manufacturer's equatorial mounts within the same price bracket; the mount design and the Star Book Ten hand controller. The forward-thinking design uses the body of the mount as part of the counterweight system, enabling smoother motion and less additional counterweight.

The Star Book Ten hand controller includes a high resolution color LCD screen with several user-friendly navigation tools that make locating celestial bodies and aligning the optical tube as easy as pressing a button. Precision gears, periodic error correction and an integrated polar axis scope make this mount a full-featured astronomy tool for amateur stargazers and researchers alike.
