Limp, Greasy Scope Adjustments getting you down?
No More! This firm, grease free guide / slewing handle attaches to the Porta I/II, Twilight I/II, as well as to some Takahashi other other manual mounts and gives you a great way to move your telescope around the sky without having to grab the tube, or the (sometimes) greasy focuser.
Thus far, these have been sold almost exclusively in Japan, but are now available to you from Astro Dog.

Customers Love this Handle
“What a wonderful and useful tool to increase the benefits of using an Alt-Az mount. I was surprised at how robust it was and the foam handle end makes it comfortable to control the scope without having to torque on the scope.”
“It took me about 5 minutes to attach this great handle to my Explore Scientific Twilight I Alt-Azimuth Mount. This is a ruggedly built, nicely finished handle with a tough powder coated finish that matches very closely with the Twilight mount. It looks like it is part of the original equipment.”
“This product is the perfect upgrade for the ever popular Vixen Porta II. It really makes a difference from using the slow motion controls or grabbing the scope by the diagonal to point the scope.”
“The Khokusai Kohki Handle is a great addition to the Vixen Porta mount 2. It’s so much easier to swing the telescope in both directions and better than grabbing the actual telescope. Built like a tank,this handle will never break. The foam hand grip is also very useful in cold weather.
