and a taller price is not the most favorable.
I have just placed a order for the DX. It has a Cgem pro tri-pod and a beefed up servo motor.
Mine will be carrying a 11" Edge.
The problem with the old CGEM is that if you where to throw up a 11", you where on the threshold of over loading the mount.
Now to wait for 4-6 weeks to go by:(
Looking forward to first light:)

Have you seen or handle a G11 in person?
The $1200 price difference is minuscule compared the huge difference in quality and precision of the G11.
I have a CGEM that came with my G11 Edge and I now wish that I should have sold it.
The only reason I decided to keep it is because the CGEM is semi portable as I can carry the head and tripod attached.
It is much harder to do so with my G11 and tripod.
I'm going to order Gemini 2 upgrade for my G11 and sell CGEM when I get it.

I was just interested in 14" Edge HD OTA but could not resist Gary's offer. The mount seemed impressive and very stable compared to CGEM but this is based on my "visual inspection" only.
