If you do end up going forward with the new mount path the Titan would probably be your best bang for buck mount at the moment and unlike some others [AstroPhysics] it should be readily available once the Gemini update is finalized. Also costs a few thousand less compared to Tak and AP.

The Titan head breaks into 2 equally heavy (about 35 pound) halves making it more portable than the CGE-Pro which breaks into a 55 pound piece and a 20 pound piece.

Sounds like the one to look at. From what I saw tonight briefly, the CGEM is behaving quite well with a lightened load. So far.

Just can't put the Celestron scope on it plus a dew shield and a camera or it tracks poorly. It liked an ED127 SBS with an ED80 guiding.
