The same ones fit the Alt/Azm and they also have them for the tripod legs!

I've replaced both DEC and RA clutch knobs on the CGEM with ADM "upgrade" orange knobs but these new knobs aren't such a tight fit as the original black Celestron clutch knobs

Gotta love Scope Stuff! Lickety-split delivery time and all the small widgets you could ever hope for!!

I got the regulated 12V power supply rated at 3.3A continuous. In addition I got the right-angle connector for the jack at the mount so the power cable isn't sticking straight out.

And then, finally the 5-foot extension for the handbox cord.

I knew I was safe to order this stuff since I am not supposed to get any clear sky at all for a week.




I got a 3A regulated switching supply from Radio Shack, and the right angle plug from Parts Express. These were for my Atlas. I still need the HC extension cord though.
I also upgraded the mount's saddle to an ADM dual saddle. Now I can mount any scope I own, and the greater clamping area of the new saddle really helps firm up the scope from wiggles.

Stewart,
I bought from Granger's too, but I got the knobs separate and added stainless steel hardware to go with it. The knobs are a little larger and I was able to replace the AZM adjusting knobs/screws as well. The stainless steel hardware made it more expensive...$18.68 for all 4 bolts/knobs for the saddle and AZM. Sure make a difference and a lot cheaper than the 'Designer' brand.
