I bought a 24" shaft for my CG-5 at:

I wanted to take a minute to pass on an endorsement for this product. I have a Celestron C6-SGT and Celestron Onyx ED80 mounted side-by-side on my CG-5. One 11-lb counterweight wasn't enough and two was overkill. With the longer shaft, I can easily balance with one. Actually I need to find a smaller weight now, because I could actually balance with less.
Anyway, Tim was super fast and friendly to deal with. I'll post a pic of my setup soon.
Thanks again Tim,
Chris
