Hi there, may be a silly question that has been answered many times before. I have been in astronomy for over 35 years. I have a celestron 9.25 SCT on an AVX mount (my first goto which I bought in march this year) , i think the mount is great in that it is portable, and pretty sturdy, but it loses alignment after a couple of hours (and its a pain sometimes to get it aligned also for some reason, the keypad spews garbage at times, so I reset). Anyone else found this problem, and is it worth upgrading to a cgemii, or something like a CGX, or maybe an EQ6 if its suitable ? I am a visual observer, so I would assume an AVX would suffice, but I tempted to save up for a cgem ii, or cgx. As at times it seems the mount is labouring with a 41mm TV panoptic. (I use a tracer power supply, so power is fine). I make sure everything is well balanced. Ohh and I bought a skysync GPS for it, that helps , even though it costs a daft amount for what it does. Advice and experience appreciated. Cheers, and clear skies!
Hi need some expert advice, I have been looking at the celestron 800 edge hd cgx. is this kit any good and can someone clarify that this is a go to mount with a hand controller capable of slewing to any object in its database (the same as celestron nextstar), if so how does the handset work around doing a meridian flip? i have also been looking at the celestron cpc 1100 gps xlt, if I fit a hyperstar to this telescope would I be able to do astrophotography with this telescope without buying the hd wedge, as I know it will make it roughly a f2.3 and I would be able to take 20 second exposures. sorry for all the questions but I know you guys are the font of all knowledge!
Hey guys, I'm not sure if anyone is interested in this but I'm always forgetting where certain features are in the hand controller so I created this menu tree for the CGX with the current firmware. Man, what a pain it was. I didn't realize how deep the structure was until I started handwriting it out. And then I find out the manual for the CGX-L has the menu tree in it! Why didn't they include it in the manual for the CGX? They are pretty much identical though I went into a little more detail in mine. CGX Menu Tree I can send it to anyone that wants it as a PDF if you send me a private message with your email address.
