StarSense for CG5?
      #5685062 - 02/17/13 11:59 AM

Intrigued by this new Celestron StarSense thing, but kind of looks like it isn't compatible with the CG5. It is advertised to work with the newer VX series mounts, but not the older CG5 mounts. Curious if I could get confirmation on this, or how well it works.

Down at the bottom it says it only works with CGEMs.

It doesn't say that at all. It says it _is_ compatible with the CG5.
