Quote:I have a CG-5 ASGT and was just checking the polar align on it. The question I have is that when polar scope tube is aligned for scope the mount for OTA is sitting 90* off from being in same alignment as polar scope would be? Is this normal? will try to attatch a picture, thank you

Quote:Oops! My bad. The CGE is NOT polar finder capable and, hence, does NOT have the bore-hole.
Quote:Yup. Perfectly normal. All German equatorial mounts seem to be this way - at least the ones with polar finder capability. My old LXD650 and Losmandy G-11, my current CGE and CGEM DX are that way, too. Why? No idea!
