I have an LX80 that I'm happy with. That said, there are users that have had trouble with it supporting the 10" SCT so I don't think I'd risk that combination. I think the 10" Meade is a bit heavier than the 11" Celestron and neither would be ideal on the CG5. The 9.25" on a CG5 would be a nice combo... but have you seen the new mount that Celestron is introducing soon. Check the thread on the Celestron VX mount. That may be just what you are looking for. The VX is also $200 less than the LX80.
