Post by cknjj »

Hi all,
I'll like to present unboxing of the new Vixen SXP mount which I've received
last Friday.

system consist of the followings :
1) SXP mount
2) Star Book Ten (version 3.10)
3) HAL 130 tripod - buy seperately
4) SXG Half Pier - buy seperately
5) 1.9kg & 3.7kg CW
6) you also need to order the dovetail bar mounting
block or losmandy saddle for your OTA (depending on
what system you r going to mount our OTA with)

Quite some pics involved. Do pardon me. Thank you.
