Bob, I'm running the 16" Orion pier extension on my old school CG-4 and it works just fine.
I did some digging - you have an Astro Telescopes 102mm f/11 on yours! That scope the reason I really NEED an extension. I was out tonight with my rig and spent half the night sitting on the ground trying to look at targets near zenith. If I wasn't on a paved surface, I'd have a major case of soggy butt...
I don't mind the idea of using a step stool for targets closer to the horizon, but I'll be damned if I wind up sitting in the snow come winter.

I got my extension the other day from Orion and was able to use it this evening - What a huge difference. Best $$$ spent is a long time!
My feelings exactly. The extra height at the eyepiece makes all the difference in the world.
