CG5, but with the not-as-good SynScan software/HC.

It is similar to a CG-5, but with the CG-4 tripod.

And you have option of adding Orion's intelliscope to make it a great push-to mount with tracking.
I can manually move mount with fine adjustment knobs at my pace and the encoders keep track where I'm located.
I lock the clutches and it continues tracking.
It is my grab-n-go mount.
