Dovetail Compatibility CGE Mount


Increased 75lb load capacity offers exceptional load capacity-to-weight ratio
Additional Aux accessory ports and autoguider port on the Dec axis for better cable management
Larger 144mm diameter worm wheels to better and more accurately drive heavier loads
Longer 270mm dovetail saddle to better support larger optical tubes
Massive 70mm stainless steel tripod legs with a wider stance for improved stability under heavy loads
New accessory tray holds three 1.25” and two 2” eyepieces with an upright stand for holding your smartphone or tablet
Heavy duty, 31.5mm 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 (optional) accessories such as StarSense AutoAlign and SkyPortal WiFi Module (these items are sold separately)
Compact, lower profile equatorial head provides improved stability and portability. Sturdy and more rigid, with quicker dampening time
Improved motors provide more torque, better slewing and tracking under heavy loads
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 meshing
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 stops (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 3º-65º latitude range
Dual-fit Vixen/CG-5 and Losmandy/CGE dovetail saddle
+20º 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; Tripod legs can be collapsed with accessory tray installed for faster setup and transport
Integrated handles for easy transport and portability
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 or rough adjustments!
Includes an easy-to-read latitude scale

Celestron's newly designed CGX-L Computerized Equatorial mount is the latest addition to their fully computerized equatorial mount series. Capable of carrying Celestron’s largest optical tubes with ease, CGX-L is designed for backyard observatories and remote imagers looking for exceptional load capacity to weight ratio, compact design, and innovative features that fully support large telescopes, imaging kits, and the latest in wireless tech accessories.

Key design goals included larger 144mm diameter worm wheels which provide smoother operation and can more accurately drive heavier loads, longer 270mm dovetail saddle to support larger optical tubes, remote operation friendly features such as home and limit optical sensors, easier polar alignment adjustments, and better cable management overall. In addition, mechanical and ergonomic improvements throughout make the mount sturdier, easier to use, and easier to transport. This new mount is COMPACT. ERGONOMIC. and highly INNOVATIVE.
