Dylan is a Celestron shill who is literally paid to give them good PR. I like his videos but don't read anything into what he says too much.

Well this is what they do they lock on to someone when they see he is great at Astrophotography no different to Meade.

 

Oh by the way did you hear Meade has gone Bankrupt https://www.ocregist...antitrust-case/

A few of Chuck's more recent videos have been about issues he has been having with his CGX.

The CGX-L is essentially a heavier-duty version of the CGX. Larger wheels, heavier, and higher weight capacity, but operates exactly the same with the controller. I really like mine...
