QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
Could this OTA be used on the Celestron Adv VX mount ?
No, you need the version with the CG5 dovetail: the CE-91025-XLT. The CE-91026-XLT has the 3" wide CGE dovetail, which will not fit the AVX mount.
Does this OTA have the correct rail for the CGEM or CGEM EQ II mounts
Yes the CGE Pro bar is the correct dovetail bar for a CGEM or CGEM-II.
Does it come with a corrector plate cover? (not mentioned as included)
Yes, this optical tube ships with the front cover to protect the corrector plate.
will a Losmandy GM8 or a Vixen GPD2 mount be able to handle the C9.25?
For visual observation or for planetary photography, yes. Neither mount would be a good match for long exposure photography.
