    Comments about Vixen GP2 Equatorial Mount with Tripod:

    I love this mount/tripod combo because it provides you with a basic setup that can be modified later on (e.g. motor, Go-To, etc), so you don't have to drop $2500 for the whole package up front. Another added benefit is resell ability. Vixen products, like Apple, retain their value over a long period of time.
