CG5 / LXD75 CW Shafts new

Does anyone know if a CG5 CW shaft is interchangeable with an LXD75 shaft including the locking collar?

Thanks,

Mike R.

As far as I can remember both are 20mm shafts but I can't remember if the threads up top are the same or not.
Celestron uses a 6mm bolt for the toe saver and Meade uses an 8mm.

Mike,

Yes, they are interchangeable. In fact they are interchangeable with other mounts such as the CGEM and Vixen mounts as well. They also all use the same ID counter wieghts.
