OVERVIEW

  • The Celestron CGX Equatorial Mount has an all-new design. It is sturdier and more rigid with quicker dampening time
  • Increased load capacity to 55 lb.
  • Improved motors provide more torque, better slewing and tracking under heavy loads
  • Heavy Duty belt-drive system minimizes backlash while providing smooth motor operation under heavy loads 
    • 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 accessory ports remain stationary while the mount slews to avoid snags
    • Internal hard stops for both axes prevents 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
  • Brand new control software developed in conjunction with PlaneWave Instruments for professional level control operation and imaging
  • Software includes multi-point mount modeling for extremely precise pointing accuracy and many more additional features for remote astroimaging
  • Wider tripod stance for improved stability
  • Adjustable EQ head position to optimize center of gravity over the tripod and fully utilize the increased 3º-65º latitude range
  • Dual-fit CG-5/Vixen and CGE/Losmandy dovetail saddle


IMPROVED TRIPOD INCLUDES:

  • 2" steel legs with height index marks for quick leveling
  • "Jack of all trays" can hold three 1.25" eyepieces, two 2" eyepieces, your smartphone, or other accessories
  • +20º of additional tracking past the meridian on either side
  • Tripod legs can be collapsed with accessory tray installed for faster setup and transport

  • 20° of additional tracking past the meridian provides greater usability
  • Dual-axis servo motors with optical encoders for smooth tracking and quiet operation
  • High-torque motors provide smooth tracking and slewing for heavy OTAs
  • Internal belt-drive system provides smooth, vibration-free tracking while minimizing backlash
  • Spring-loaded brass worm wheel and stainless steel worm gear reduce friction and improve gear meshing
  • Limit sensors automatically shut off slewing or tracking before reaching the hard stop fail-safe
  • Internal hard stops for both axes prevent cable tension and tripod strike
  • Autoguider port for making corrections while astroimaging
  • Dual Vixen/Losmandy dovetail saddle, compatible with CG-5 and CGE bars
