    Questions & Answers

    Ask a Question
    • Would this work with my 4.5 Star Blaster EQ Reflector The EQ1 it came with is more useful as a fishing weight  Yes in near future I plan on upgrading my scope 

      Good choice :) I actually own this mount for my Celestron 8" SCT optical tube and have found it a very sturdy mount for a grab & go setup. There is one plate that you will need to mount this onto the CG-4 & that is the Losmandy V-Series Short Universal

    • Would this scope design be decent for visual use as well?

      If you are looking for a dual-purpose (photo/visual) telescope, the EdgeHD series from Celestron will be a much better fit. EdgeHD telescope are designed for both visual-observing and astro-imaging, through the visual-back at the rear of the telescope. Ad

    • will a 8" celestron sc telescope with a cg-5 mount fit your omni cg-4 mount, or do i need to purchase an adapter?

      Hello Royg, If the optical tube fits on the CG-5, then it will indeed fit the Omni CG-4 mount because the dovetail saddles on both the CG-4 & CG-5 are the same so you will be fine there.

    • Does the CG-4 mount come with a polar scope?

      No, the polar scope is not included. The Omni/CG-4 mount needs the CE-94223 polar scope specifically for that mount.

    • I intend to use this mount with a Explore Scientific DAR127 telescope. Will I need to order a different dovetail plate or will the one supplied witht this mount work with the ES-DAR127's mount? Thank you.

      Hello John, The dovetail plate that is supplied with the telescope is a V-Series dovetail plate. The saddle on the CG-4 is a V-Series saddle so the telescope will indeed fit on this mount with the dovetail plate supplied.

    • Weight capacity of 20 lbs, does that include the V-series dovetail and tube rings, the telescope tube, the finder scope, diagonal mirror, and the eyepiece?  Or just the weight of the telescope tube?

      Celestron CG-4 German Equatorial Mount and Tripod: The weight capacity of the CG-4 EQ Mount is 20lbs. and that includes anything attaching to the mount, including dovetail.

    • Will an Orion Dual Axis TrueTrack Telescope Drive work with this tripod?

      Unfortunately, it will not . the only motor drive that is compatible with this mount is the Celestron Dual Axis motor Drive for the CG-4. You can check it out it's product page here: https://www.optcorp.com/celestron-dual-axis-dc-motor-drive-for-cg-4-moun
