CG5 tripod compatability?
Posted 14 April 2011 - 09:54 PM
What mounts will fit the tripod with little or no adaptation? I prefer a mount that has RA drive available as an add on. If I can find something sturdy enough I may decide to forget repairing the CG5 head Thanks; Don T.

Anyway, here is the list of the ones I know are compatible:
Celestron CG5 (duh)
Orion Sky View Pro
Orion EQ-G Sirius
I don't know about the Skywatcher mounts, but for sure there are several compatible, as they are made also by Synta.

Vixen GP, GP2, GPD2 (but not Vixen Sphinx, or as designated SX series) or to put it another way Vixen tripods for "GP" series all interchange with the following
Orion: Astroview, SVP, Sirius
Celestron: CG4, CG5
Sky Watcher: EQ3, EQ5, HEQ5
or in other words all of the above are interchangeable
