• When pressing the illumination button, the scale is illuminated for one to two minutes
• Power will automatically turn off after one to two minutes to prevent unnecessary power consumption
• Configure your Meridian offset and time zone calculator with their handy tool

Motors
The Sphinx SXP Mount features pulse motors designed to react smoothly and accurately. The micro slow motion control assures you of smooth operation.

R.A and DEC
The R.A. and DEC wheels have 180 teeth. They are high precision machined wheels and worm gears made of brass for the most accurate tracking possible. The R.A. and DEC shafts are comprised of strong carbon steel. The rotational parts have 15 bearings. All this to provides smooth tracking and slewing.

Unique Mount Design
The Sphinx SXP Mount is designed so that the mount body acts as part of the counterweight system. Does not include tripod.

Polar Axis Scope
The New Vixen Polarie Polar Scope PF-L improves on the performance of Vixen’s original polar scope. Using a 3 star alignment with a smart phone app, setting up alignment is an easy process
