Celestron CGX


Celestron CGX
Celestron CGX Series telescopes are based upon the innovative CGX equatorial mount that was first announced in September 2016. The CGX mount is capable of supporting up to 55 pounds of instruments. Those wishing to image with an eleven inch optical tube should consider this to be Celestron's least expensive option for supporting those optics along with a camera, guide scope, and autoguider. Some of the features introduced with this mount include a belt drive on both drive axes to minimize backlash, home and limit sensors to ensure that the mount always starts its alignment procedure from a known position, and a USB port directly on the mount head for connecting to a PC.

Mounts of this size are used primarily for astrophotography as opposed to casual visual observing. The equatorial head is the heaviest single component of the system, weighing in at 44 pounds. This is well within most people's definition of a portable system, but there is some heavy lifting involved. Other components including the tripod and individual counterweights are more manageable at 19 and eleven pounds, respectively. Unlike most German equatorial mounts, there is no provision for sighting Polaris through a bore in the right ascension axis for casual visual observing. Precise polar alignment may be achieved using the internal All Star polar alignment routine, or by use of an optional polar axis finder.
