Vixen Polaris equatorial mount and 4.5" reflector
Original Japanese Vixen Polaris mount in black on a wooden tripod with accessory tray and counterweight. This has very smooth slow motions on both RA and Dec axis with the added advantage that it can be shifted to a latitude setting of 90 so will function as an altaz mount.
It would be ideal for a Solar telescope or a small Lunar/Planetary scope.
This mount is in excellent condition, the only drawback is that it predates the interchangeable Vixen clamp system, so you will need to attach the scope directly to the top plate. The exact method would depend on your scope, either tube rings or a block for a foot plate to bolt to.
Included with the mount is a 4.5" Newtonian, badged Celestron but it was produced by Vixen. Mirror coatings still very good but there are some cosmetic marks to the tube. What it does include are two tube rings with an internal diameter of 140mm approx which could be very useful for attaching a better scope to the mount.

This is a great mount that I am only selling as I have two other Vixen mounts and am trying to reduce my extensive equipment list!

Cash on collection from Bedford.
