Well, that would definitely flesh out his mount offerings. He offers Alt-Az friction, Alt-Az slo-mo, and Alt-Az "Push-To" so adding a less expensive GEM GOTO makes sense. I know that he offers the Mountain Instruments MI-250 mount for his big scopes.

Yes to the question in the OP.

Vic was talking about the CGEM mounts several weeks ago following the SCAE. The website changed a day or two ago but when I was up there today...yet again...the new mounts were not in.

It's a terrible burden/wonderful opportunity living so close to Stellarvue World Headquarters. Today's trip resulted in me buying a new 9x50 finder and ring set for the new SV102/11D.

That is interesting. I was thinking of upgrading to a CGEM so I can do some imaging with my SV115T.
