Our club plans to replace the fork mount on our C11 with a CGE mount.  Question.  We have a classic C8.  Could the fork mount be made to handle the C8?  Maybe remove an arm and make it a single arm mount?  Just wondering.

Mounting a dovetail bracket to one of the C11 scope tube brackets and using a dovetail bar on a new scope.  I thought you could do something like that.  Thanks.

 

P.S.  On the related note, I'll call Celestron tech support tomorrow about the CGE1400 mount.  Maybe I can ship the lower portion of the mount to get that RA port fixed.
