Hi, I am very new to this so I have a question about what dovetail plate I should buy for the Celestron CGEM. I looked it up and I can't tell what size dovetail plate is needed and it doesn't show it on the specs of the mount so I am not sure what size dovetail plate I need. If anyone has any recommendations for a dovetail plate for the CGEM or one they have used on it, I would really appreciate you tell me about it, because this is very confusing to me. Thanks!

The CGEM has a CGE or D-Mount (D-series) saddle. The CG-5 or V-mount (v-series) is the small one. You can go to ADM accessories and look at the two to get a better idea. This website also sells CGEM saddles that accept both v-series and d-series, just like the AVX.

Okay that helps a lot, thank you!
