SXD2 mount with SD103S telescope

These telescope sets are ideal for beginner observers.
The sets include a telescope, a mount with automatic tracking, a tripod and eyepieces.
Featuring the STARBOOK TEN control system, the telescope locates celestial objects automatically so that you don't need to search for them manually.
Even if you're not an expert, you can still give your friends
an exciting tour through the night sky!

The SXD2 mount comes with the new STARBOOK TEN controller and the PFL polar viewfinder, which allows you to configure the mount quickly and easily via reference stars.

The SXD 2 mount in detail
With a combination of the best features from the Sphinx series and the all-new STAR BOOK TEN manual controller, Vixen has developed a new generation of SX mounts for demanding observers and astrophotographers.
The SXD2 mount comes with the new STAR BOOK TEN controller and can be operated manually or with a computer.
Featuring the same precision stepper motors as the top-of-the range AXD mount, the SXD2 sets a new standard for performance in the Vixen mount range. Compared with the SX mounts, the SXD2 has a quieter tracking system, and the increased precision of the motors provides better performance for the long exposure times used in astrophotography.

Precision stepper motors and micro-step motion control system
The star feature of the SXD2 is the precision stepper motors, which offer better performance and responsiveness than previous models. The micro-step motion control system has powerful yet very quiet drive characteristics that offer both fine control and quick swivel movements.

Built-in bearings
The bearings of the RA and DEC axles and the worm shafts were significantly improved in order to reduce the load on the motors. The motors are much quieter than those on previous models.

Robust RA and DEC axles
High-precision and thick steel shafts in RA and DEC axles increase the robustness and stability of the SXD2 mount.

High-precision worm gears
High-precision processing technologies were used to rectify problems with the worm gear. The edges of both worms and worm gears are particularly smooth, which enables them to deliver very high precision.

Declination axis functions as counterweight
The sturdy motor units are located in the lower section of the declination axis to ensure that the SDX2's centre of gravity is below the intersection of the RA and DEC axis. As a result, fewer additional counterweights are required.

The SD103S in detail

A new apochromatic refractor with high-performance Super ED glass (=SD).
The FPL53 glass reproduces an extremely clear and sharp image byeliminating residual chromatic aberration.
Another advantage of these SD refractors is their short length and lightweight design.
The SD glass is designed to focus all beams of violet, red, blue, yellow and green light exactly onto the same level.
The special lens material reduces chromatic aberration across all colours.
Together with the new optional SD Reducer HD Kit or SD Flattener HD, these refractors provide illumination with a 44 mm image circle for full-frame SLR cameras.

The large focuser allows you to attach heavy cameras without the telescope tilting.

The telescope also comes with a folding mirror for making observations in unfavourable conditions,

as well as a T2 thread for connecting a DSLR camera.
