"Vamo(s)" in Spanish means "let's go", same as "ayo" in Indonesian. It's the same meaning and it's the absolute mind of this mount. True backpacker's astronomy.

the mount is available also in red-black and grey-black
It is lightweight in design (like aircraft technology) for maximum portability, and yet can be loaded with up to a 4” f/10 refractor or a 8" SCT. The weight of the complete mount is less than 1.4 kg (2.8 lbs), nonetheless it provides vibration-free, absolutely smooth movement that is free of stiction and back-swing, comparable in feel to a good Dobsonian. It is perfect for smaller refractors of up to 4" with a weight of 6 kg and it works even if you use magnifications up to 200x or more.

The mount is compatible with the Vixen GP® or SkyWatcher EQ5/HEQ5® as well as standard photographic tripods with 3/8" thread.

All parts are designed and constructed with a very lightweight yet strong and stable design for your best pleasure in astronomy. Accurately milled with high quality aluminium and resistant with 18 μ anodized layer for long life. All parts means really all parts. Here you can see some example for this effort in detail:

the absolutely lightweight azimuth axis, which weighs only about 100 gr.
the completely milled "Vixen size" saddle on the altitude axis
