Celestron AVX - GoTo noise level?
      #5651047 - 01/29/13 07:55 PM

I am tired of mounts that can wake the dead. Is this new mount more/less quiet than the CG-5GT or about the same?

There's some discussion of this on the other AVX thread, the opinion of users is that it is a bit quieter.

It does have the option of reducing the maximum slew rate and this allow you to make it as quiet as you like at the expense of slew rate.
