In any case the Vixen type is what the existing (stock) dovetail clamp is built for so to use your existing CG5 compatible stuff you want the Vixen or dual Vixen/Losmandy.

If you got the scratch ADM Saddle adapter for CG5 is wonderful. I have it on both of my CG5's.
Got one for my CG5 and it works very well.
It has saved me a couple of times in the dark and cold from screwing up a setup - and dropping the OTA. Lightly rock the OTA side to side as you tighten the clamp - that makes sure it is seated in the slot.

ACE, stocked by Hillman, prices are somewhat high, but for onesies and twosies in real time, price is usually not a major factor.
