Celestron’s engineering team applied their years of experience designing German Equatorial mounts to the all-new CGX, a culmination of all the advancements made to our technologies. By refocusing our design efforts and anticipating the needs of today’s visual observers and astroimagers, Celestron has achieved a new level of "state-of-the-art" with the all new CGX German equatorial mount. Compact. Solid. Innovative. Totally redesigned with a lower profile, CGX is sturdier and more rigid than its predecessors with several new innovative features and new control software ideally suited for automation and remote operation.
