About the Vixen GPD2

The GPD2 equatorial mount is the stronger and heftier of the GP mounts. With its solid steel R. A., Declination axes and brass worm gears, this mount will hold up to years of heavy use. In order to assure accurate tracking for astrophotography the worm gears are especially machined to a very high precision that minimizes periodic error.

The Vixen GPD2 holds almost 50% more weight than the GP2. It is easy to use and functions well for both the visual observer and astrophotographer. Motion is controlled by included control knobs for accurate slewing. The polar altitude adjustment varies from 0° to 62° in altitude.

  • Vixen GPD2 Deluxe Equatorial Mount
