The Celestron CGX & CGX-L mounts include the latest technology to deliver high-quality performance for both visual astronomers and astrophotographers.
The Celestron CGX telescope mount can hold an impressive 55 pounds while still remaining portable and user-friendly with it's ergonomic design. This makes the CGX mount a great option for the visual and imaging astronomer who are constantly on the go. To add to the list of new features, telescope control software has been developed by both Celestron and Planewave Instruments engineers to support remote operation, Go-To modeling, and plate solving.
For those with larger systems, the 75 pound weight capacity of the CGX-L mount is capable of handling some of the largest telescopes with ease. The CGX-L mount includes a larger tripod and larger worm wheels for more accurate tracking.
