Am I mistaken, but did Celestron once offer an  Evolution HD 9.25"?

It still does if you can find one. Seen https://www.amazon.c...ype=all_reviews

You just need to pair it with an Evolution mount.

I’m surprised they didn’t offer it as one of the Evolution packages. They do with the CPC Deluxe mount.

Maybe concern that the weight of the 9.25” Edge OTA (21#), which is (only 1#) heavier than the non-Edge 9.25” OTA, is pushing the load limit of the Evolution mount (25#)? The CPC mount is more robust.
