    Experience the improved Performance of the Celestron CGX Schmidt Cassegrain Telescope and Mount

    Innovative Design - The Celestron CGX mount is incredibly ergonomic, with the convenient carrying handles and easy to use turn knobs. The Celestron CGX series provides internal cabling that bypasses the issue of cable twisting or tangling. Route all your power supply and accessory cables into a convenient port on a part of the mount that moves. The cables enter into the mount, contained, and reach everywhere they need to without any tangling issues.

    Revamped Engineering - This mount boasts drastically reduced backlash and improved stability. Also incredibly rigid, this mount has an improved motor system that greatly boosts the provided torque.

    Peak Optics - For objects near the Meridian (imaginary line passing from North to South), the Celestron CGX mount will track a full 20 degrees past the Meridian for uninterrupted imaging through the most ideal part of the sky. The CGX mount has a robust database with over 40,000 objects, utilizing a top-quality NexStar hand controller.
