Vixen GP2 Equatorial Mount & StarBook S (Item #39903) $1,099.00
Vixen GP2 Equatorial Mount & StarBook S (Item #39903)

With smooth and accurate tracking, Vixen's GP2 Equatorial Mount is a platform for serious astronomers. This easy to use mount functions well for both the visual observer and the astrophotographer. The GP2 is an excellent choice for observers who want a simple, yet sturdy mount, with the ability to grow into a go-to system. Add the optional STAR BOOK-S for full go-to functionality.

The latest option for the GP2 and GPD2 mounts is the new STARBOOK S which incorporates Vixen’s legendary GOTO controller with BUILT IN STAR CHART that shows you exactly where the telescope is pointing and displays “what’s up” right now. The included (and upgradeable) software contains a 22,000 object database giving the user an endless variety of objects to view. Included are drop down menus of different categories of celestial objects, including Stars, Planets, Messier, NGC and other famous objects. Each sub menu only lists the objects that are available to be viewed at that time. This eliminates the frustration of other GOTO systems that don’t tell you the object is below the horizon until after you have selected it. With the Vixen Starbook you will spend more time viewing and less time searching.

The package includes advanced encoded motors for accurate tracking and an auto-guider port and PEC (periodic error correction) are standard features. All of this makes the GP2 and GPD2 with STARBOOK S the most affordable, quality astro-photographer’s mount available.
