Had first light last night with my new CGE.It was a blast using the new alignment routine.Goto's were dead on.My biggest problem was I never thought about the cge comes with a 25lb CW'and my TSA is only 14lb.Then I remebered to add the top plate for my guide scope plus the finder scope and moving the cw all the way up the bar'I reach balance.Well here is a link to my album.Thanks BOB

Congratulations! I'll always have a soft spot in my astroheart for the CGE.

Hi starbob1,

Nice setup. If you're running a very light load, you can get a Losmandy 11lb. counterweight. I've got one for when I mount my 80mm refractor and it works great.

That is a very nice pier set up as well :)
