Micro Adjustable Geared XYAZ Head for Mini Guider & Vixen Polarie
- Auto-guiding mount - use with Miniguider 60 Clamp (code: MG60-CLAMP) to achieve full pan/tilt control over your Altair 60mm miniguider OTA to center guide stars precisely.
- Video-finder mount - when used for video finding, allows you to maintain precise alignment between video finder and main telescope.
- Vixen Polarie ALT-AZ base - the perfect solution for mounting your Vixen Polarie! Mount the Micro Adjustable Pan/Tilt head between the Polarie and your tripod head to give you very fine adjustments necessary for polar alignment.
- Piggyback DSLR mounting - mount your DSLR piggyback on your main scope and use the fine motion controls for accurate framing of the subject.
- Studio / macro photgraphy - attach to your existing tripod pan/tilt head for making even finer pan/tilt adjustments.

I put this between my camera tripod head and my Polarie then did rough alignment using the camera tripod, locked that into position. Then I used the micro adjustment for polar alignment. Locked off with the lokcing knobs and it tracks fine so I'm happy with it and works as advertised.

I got much better tracking when with my polarie as I found it difficult to polar align before due to my tripod being a little sticky for fine movements -Kev

ordered this because it addresses the main issue with the Vixen Polarie - namely no fine adjustable AZ base!

I'm using this with Nikon D700 and 50mm lens mounted on my Meade LX200. Very precise adjustment and easy to lock off using the large knob on the other side. It's a well built product at a reasonable price. J
