How much heavier is a CG5 mount to a CG4?

I see that since the Celestron VX came out that Cg-5's are going cheap. I just saw an add in the classifieds for a CG-5 for $325! SO I am considering this.
How much heavier is a CG-5 compared to a CG-4? Does anyone use a CG-5 for a grab and go?

new ones are selling for 550 on the internet so used values have to go down on them.

Yep! For either my 80mm or my C8 SCT. Quick set-up, quite portable (by car), excellent GoTos and tracking. Having said that, both of my CG5ASGTs had to get warranty serviced. One twice, the other once shortly after purchase. Since Celestron repaired them they've worked flawlessly. I do highly recommend the ADM CG5 Saddle Adapter.
