Don't know who make the mount but I bought one here on CN listed as a "CG5 clone" from scopehead. I found that it was Ok for what it was - a cheep GEM.

There were other posts about this mount on CN around the same time.

I'm not the one selling it, skyguy, I just noticed it on ebay and wondered if it was worth bidding on. Thanks for the link, though.

It was not a bad mount for a smallish OTA. Worked well for manual push-to with an 80mm refractor and a 150mm Mak. It was easier to use than the CG5 I had for a quick look. Had to keep the tripod legs fully retracted. I think I paid about $160 new for it.
