    The New Mobile Porta is a variation of Vixen's award winning Porta II Mount. This mount is easier to transport due to its unique multi function fork arm which allows the Mobile Porta to fold much more compactly than its predecessors. At less than 8 pounds this mount is ready to go to all your observing sites.

    Your telescope can be moved manually to the right position and then fine tuned with the slow motion controls. The multi function single fork arm folds without the use of tools for easy transport and storage. Setting up your scope in minutes is a simple operation.

    The direction of the multi arm can be rotated at an of of 15 degree intervals so that you avoid having the telescope impeded by the slow motion handles. Additionally, the vertical slow motion control can move outward.
    The Mobile Porta includes all the features of the original Porta II mount such as slow motion handles, friction stop system and removable mount head.

    The A70lf / Mobile Porta Package is complete with:

    · Vixen A70Lf 70mm f/12.9 telescope.

    · A smaller 6 power finder telescope that attaches to the main scope to help you center the object.

    · A 20mm eyepiece for general viewing.

    · A 6.3mm eyepiece for those really clear nights for high power viewing.

    · A diagonal Prism that connects the eyepiece to the telescope.

    · A Dew / Sun shield.

    · Complete tube rings and dovetail plate to quickly attach the A70Lf to the Vixen Porta II mount.

    · Mobile Porta Mount with slow motion handles and tray
