Looking to get a small scope for travel/G&G. Most probably the C-6. Am wondering what our members experiences have been with either the CG-4 or Twilight 1

I have a CG-4 with tracking drive and polar alignment scope. It seems to be a very well built mount. I really can't find any fault in it.

 

The CG-4 is a GEM while the Twilight 1 is alt-az. Generally speaking, the alt-az is going to be lighter and smaller for grab and go use.
