Looking for a drawing or picture of the CGEM internals (shafts etc...). I am thinking it might be nice to run wires through the mount if they won't get pinched or cut. That front plug is just begging for it.

This YouTube video Polar Scope Modification for Celestron CGEM DX Mount might give you an idea what's inside. When I bought my hypertune kit from Deep Space Products it came with some very nice photos of all the gears and stuff inside.

That polar scope mod is brilliant... My scope will be next with this.
