The StarGuy Alt Az Pro is a step up from the Porta II Mount. It features the well designed Porta II head atop the HAL130SXG heavy duty tripod for a rigid platform with great stability. It uses a dovetail system, developed and popularized by Vixen, to accept a variety of telescope makes.
The Train-N-Track (TNT) system is a basic alt-azimuth motor drive system with adjustable or trainable tracking. A simple 30-second training procedure allows the scope to track for 10 minutes or more. Adjustable speeds on both axes along with high speed centering allow slewing control according to taste. An over-ride manual mode allows movement without having to unlock a clutch. The drive is powered by 8 user-supplied batteries. The Alt Az Pro Motor also includes a metal accessory tray and 2 long flex handles.
The “World-Standard” dovetail attachment system on the StarGuy Alt Az was developed by Vixen. This allows the Alt Az Pro head to accept various dovetail mounted optical tubes and binoculars.
