CG5 mount question

The Warthog

Recommended Posts

If you are looking at buying a new one make sure you get the C6N you can then sell the OTA and recover some of the cost. For some reason over here the CG5 mount only is £750 but if you buy the C6N for £650 and then sell the OTA for £100. Wierd

Second hand is always cheaper though. To be honest the CG5-GT (AS-GT) is a great mount but it's NOISY be warned! Theres a mini review here


and there are some others on Cloudy Nights too

Or, I can buy the 8" SCT with XLT coatings on the CG5 mount for $1725, giving me the mount for $426 $326, keep the SCT, and sell my EQ3-2 and C6N, and keep the refractor, and have the two scopes I really want. I'll have to see what I can talk Mrs. Warthog into when her union's grievance settlement comes through, hopefully this autumn.
