Product description:

The Advanced Polaris equatorial mount is ideal for beginners, but also for more experienced observers who are looking for a light travel mount.

The Advanced Polaris not only has a very stylish design, but also some powerful features under the hood, as the illustration on the right shows. An aluminium gearwheel with a 58.4mm diameter and 144 teeth allows fine adjustments to the axes, as well as 9mm diameter worm shafts, each supported by two bearings - that’s precision engineering at its best!

What is special about the Advanced Polaris is the adjustable slipper clutch: without having to unlock anything, you can simply move your telescope in the direction in which you want to point it. The exact centering of the eyepiece is then done using rotary knobs. The slipper clutch works even if your Advanced Polaris is equipped with motors (AP-SM). This allows you to quickly and intuitively navigate the sky.

In order to align the mount to the north, you can use either a polar finder scope, or the compass of the of the Vixen Polarie photo mount. The Advanced Polaris has connectors for both options. The compass has the advantage that you do not need to bend down under the mount, and also don’t need a view of the Polar Star for alignment. The polar finder and compass can be found under “recommended accessories”. In summary: thanks to the extensive accessories available, the mount can be enhanced to suit all your needs.

The resistance of the slip clutch is adjustable and so can be adapted to optics of different weights.
