If Celestron offered the 5i, and 8i mount separately? That way when, or if ones Nexstar 5, or 8 dies, we could upgrade fairly inexpensively!! :roflmao:WW

It would be a nice package. Celestron has taken at least a step in that direction by offering the ASC mount and the CGE mount alone; Meade hasn't done that with their GEMs (LXD55, LXD750). The dual-fork jobs wouldn't work out well, as the width is too specific and mechanical alignment critical. I agree with you that the one-arm bandits are a good candidate for this.

No. Desertstars, I'm NOT sure this isn't trolling. I don't think it is though 'cause I don't taste my Nikes like I did with the Gay Adoption thread. At least this isn't (hopefully) sensitive, nor confrontational. :roflmao:WW
