Quote:Thanks for the inputs. From the little info I found on Vixen yahoo groups, it seems like SXD software issues are somewhat resolved. But it's a $2800 risk to find out it's not compatible with certain autoguiders or software.
Yup, switching to CG5 is going sideways for me. As a matter of fact when I first was looking for a mount, Woodland Hills Telescopes talked me into LXD75 instead of CG5 as being the better of the two. Haven't shopped there since.
CGEM/Atlas seems to be rated only 5 lbs more than LXD75. Can it handle a future C9.25 or Mead 10" SCT for AP, or should I bear the weight and get CGE?
How much do CGE parts weigh? I can't find any info on the web.
