I noticed that the Celestron's Website nor the manual didn't include the gear ratio's listed. Anyone have information on this? I also noticed that a polar scope is optional but not available anyone know if the CG5 polar scope will work with it?

The larger CG-5/CGEM polar scope will fit on the AVX. However, the small aluminum shield where they use to put the setting circle must be removed in order to put the polar scope cover back on the mount.

Someone will probably have to do some gear teeth counting to figure out the gear ratios.

If you are thinking of the worm period it's about 10 minutes. PECTool and PEMPro are both aware of this.

looks like I'm crunching numbers for ratio's and yes Chris the PEC is 10 minutes I'm curious to compare the CG to VX difference. Since this a newer product and I have success with it I feel since I get no real response from Celestron I'm diving in myself.
