I'm building cart to move around my scope..I currently own a cg-5, but want to plan ahead for my eventual upgrade to the cgem dx. Can any one tell me the size of the CGEM DX's footprint, measurement from outside of tripod leg to outside of leg. Thanks

With or without the bottom portion extended? That will make a huge difference in the measurement. If extended, how far?

I should have been more specific...with the legs fully retracted.
