The AXJ Mount features superior performance and ease of use while achieving sturdiness close to Vixen's AXD Mount. 
The sturdy and precision-made AXJ Mount, which is almost rival to Vixen's flagship AXD Mount, has a lightweight body that is applicable to SXG-HAL130 tripod. It is best suited for the demanding astrophotographer as a comfortable and secure imaging platform.
