    Explore the Celestron CGX-L EQ Features

    EdgeHD Features

    • Experience our best optical performance with EdgeHD’s flat-field and coma-free optics for pinpoint stars all the way to the edge of today’s largest imaging sensors and widest eyepieces.
    • Aluminum optical tube with tube vents featuring an integrated 95-micron mesh filter allows hot air to be released from behind the primary mirror. Mirror support knobs hold the mirror in place and reduce image shift during imaging.
    • Versatile design accommodates 2 focal ratios: native f/10 or ultra-fast f/2 imaging with a removable secondary mirror and third-party accessories.

    New CGX-L Features

    • Increased 75 lb load capacity. Exceptional load capacity to weight ratio.
    • Additional Aux accessory ports and autoguider port on the Dec axis for better cable management.
    • Larger 144 mm diameter worm wheels to better and more accurately drive heavier loads.
    • Longer 270 mm dovetail saddle to better support larger optical tubes.
    • Massive 70 mm stainless steel tripod legs with a wider stance for improved stability under heavy loads.
    • A new accessory tray holds three 1.25-inch and two 2-inch eyepieces with an upright stand for your smartphone or tablet.
    • Heavy-duty, 31.5 mm stainless steel counterweight shaft to support additional counterweights.
    • Optional add-on polar axis finderscope custom designed for CGX and CGX-L.
    • Supports WiFi and wireless operation accessories such as StarSense AutoAlign and SkyPortal WiFi Module (sold separately).

    Mount Features

    • Compact, lower profile equatorial head provides improved stability and portability. Sturdier and more rigid with quicker dampening time.
    • Improved motors provide more torque, better slewing and tracking under heavy loads.
    • Its heavy-duty belt-drive system minimizes backlash while providing smooth motor operation at full capacity.
    • Clear windows built into motor covers so pulleys and belts can be monitored.
    • Spring-loaded brass worm wheel and stainless steel worm gear reduce friction and provide optimum gear mesh.
    • Internal cabling for worry-free remote operation. Power input and lower accessory ports remain stationary while the mount slews to avoid snags.
    • Internal hard stops for both axes prevent cable tension and tripod strike.
    • Internal optical sensors on both axes for simple and safe remote operation.
    • Home sensors allow the mount to always start in the index position regardless of orientation before a power reset.
    • Limit sensors automatically shut off slewing or tracking before reaching the hard stop fail-safe.
    • Includes Celestron's new PWI telescope control software, co-developed by PlaneWave Instruments. Software features multi-point mount modeling for extremely precise pointing accuracy.
    • Software Polar Align: “All-Star Polar Alignment” allows quick and very precise polar alignment. Align on any bright named star without extra polar alignment accessories, apps, or other assistance.
    • Adjustable EQ head position to optimize center of gravity over the tripod and fully utilize the increased 3 degrees to 65 degrees latitude range.
    • Dual-fit Vixen/CG-5 and Losmandy/CGE dovetail saddle.
    • Plus 20 degrees of additional tracking past the meridian on either side.
    • Redesigned tripod has a widened stance for added stability. The minimum tripod height has also been lowered per user feedback.
    • Tripod legs can be collapsed with accessory tray installed for faster setup and transport.

    Improved Ergonomics

    • Integrated handles for easy transport and portability.
    • All-new ergonomically designed dovetail clamping knobs.
    • Innovative and improved polar alignment adjustment system.
    • All-new ergonomic adjustment knobs with reduced friction for smooth and easy positioning under full loads. Stationary latitude knob with a newly-designed linkage system greatly reduces the amount of friction when polar aligning the mount. Redesigned azimuth adjustment with low-friction Teflon bearings to make adjustments easy under full load. No more binding, rough adjustments!
    • Easy to read latitude scale.


    • NexStar+ hand control with USB port.
    • USB 2.0 port used to connect directly to PC with PWI Software.
    • 2 available autoguider ports for optimum cable management.
    • PEC sensor and PPEC ready.
    • Threaded 12VDC power input barrel connector.
    • Internal Real Time Clock (keeps time and site information saved).
    • On/Off rocker switch with a red LED.
