Quote:I've read on CN and other sites that Orion's SkyView Pro mount extension works on CG4 mounts, but I am unsure if its only the "omni" cg4 mounts with the steel tube legs or if it'll fit the all black CG4 models as well. I have the all black CG4 model with awesome wooden legs from Hands On Optics, and I wanted to possibly add the mount extension so I can leave the legs retracted and closer to ground while being able to view zenith without the scope hitting the legs.
My eyepieces are made from the waste product of exploding stars.
