Technical Features for Celestron CGX Computerized Mount

The Celestron CGX Computerized Mount is designed to better support the telescope for both visual and astro-imaging pursuits. It includes a lower profile EQ head, that provides a more compact and therefore more stable setup, a better drive system and easier polar alignment adjustments. Capable of holding 55 lbs. of payload and slewing at 5° per second, you will be able to instantly point to any of the celestial objects in the database.

The CGX Computerized Mount features smoother Belt-Drive system that minimizes backlash while providing smooth motor operation under heavy loads. The spring-loaded brass worm wheel and stainless steel worm gear reduce friction and provide optimum gear mesh. The mount has internal cabling for worry-free remote operation.
