I have a C5 on a CG4 mount. Can I use this mount for a C6 or C8 sct?

Welcome to Cloudy Nights!

If you have the CG4 with the 1.75" steel legs you should be fine with a C-6 and OK with a C-8 visually.

I second that.

I've used a C9.25 on one, but it was pier mounted. I only used it for planet imaging & it coped surprisingly well. Not recommended though for a long period of time.

A C8 should be sweet.
