CGX-L Equatorial Mount And Tripod
Celestron’s newly designed CGX-L Equatorial Mount 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. Furthermore, it’s compact design, and innovative features fully support large telescopes, imaging kits, and the latest in wireless tech accessories.
Key design goals included larger 144 mm diameter worm wheels which provide smoother operation and can more accurately drive heavier loads. The longer 270 mm dovetail saddle supports larger optical tubes. Also the remote operation friendly features such as home and limit optical sensors, easier polar alignment adjustments, and better cable management overall. In addition to that, we’ve made mechanical and ergonomic improvements throughout to make the mount sturdier. The CGX-L Equatorial Mount is easier to use, and easier to transport. COMPACT. ERGONOMIC. INNOVATIVE.
