DESCRIPTION

Celestron's newly designed CGX-L Computerized Equatorial mount is the latest addition to our 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.

Highly recommend:   PoleMaster is the fastest and easiest way to polar align you mount.  Be sure to add the appropriate adapter for this mount or use the ADM adapter that clamps to the Vixen style or Losmandy style dovetail bar of your telescope.
