Quote:There was a thread over in Cats & Casses started by a CNer who just got one. He has a couple of pictures of it, not many comments on the mount, just the C11 HD OTA...but you could always ask! One other note, there is a Yahoo CGEM DX users group that Ed Thomas of Deep Space Products started. You should check that out before deciding between the Atlas and the CGEM DX.
