Quote:Quote:This one fits:http://www.telescopes.com/telescope-accessories/mount-accessories/celestronmotordrivedualaxismodelcg4mount.cfm The Celstron dual axis-motor drive takes 4 D or C batteries. In the long run it will cost a fortune in batteries. Is there any dual axis drive that can run off AC?

I lost count of my scopes. Now I just want mobility. I came, I saw, I bought some interesting accessories, and put names to faces: NEAF 2012, ASAE 2012, SWAP 2013, ASAE 2013.

Quote:Ok I may buy one at this point so in a nutshell, to double check...think the Orion 100ED f/9 be ok on the mount (better than portamount)? AND does the Orion Single Drive system for the Astroview mount work on this??

Quote:Actually, this mount looks physically much like the skywatcher EQ3-pro mount, or EQ3 synscanhttp://www.skywatcher.com/swtinc/product.php?id=121&class1=3&class2=304So I guess it would be slightly less stable that the Skywatcher EQ5 mount or the Orion SVP mounts.Basically, my question is if this Celestron CG-4 mount would be an improvement over my Astroview mount, and if so would this be a significant improvement ...Comments apreciated.Michael
