  • Is the foam cut to fit the telescope ?

    The Celestron Hard Case for CGE Head/Pier, NexStar 8SE or 8 contains pluck foam. Pluck foam allows the user to customize the case to fit their individual accessories.

  • i picked up a used LDX-55 mount is this the controller i need or is there a better model? do you have a used one thanks

    As Todd answered YES it will! The Meade Audiostar also works very well with the Meade LXD75 Go-To mounts. It's a giant leap forward from the #497 Autostar controllers. "Clear Skies"!

  • Will the piggyback mount work on CPC 1100 telescopes without additional adapter? I've seen other advertisements showing a additional adapter.

    This piggyback bracket works on all recent and current Celestron SCT scopes from 5" to 14" diameter, so the CPC1100 will have no issues with attaching the bracket.

  • Does this work with the Nexstar 11 GPS telescope? If not is there an equivalent? I'm looking to piggyback an old C90 spotting scope.

    Yes, this piggyback bracket comes with an adapter that allows it to be used on SCT scopes up to 14" The 8" SE and your 11" Nexstar GPS share the same mounting pattern, so this will work with your scope.
