Looks like it's for an SE Mount, however It might work with another Celestron Alt/Az Mount.

You can also flash it to work with a Celestron GEM as well.

Thanks, Mike appreciate your response. My current dilemma is that a friend of mine has a 114GT with a NexStar non-plus HC running v100.7 firmware, as you know this HC is non-upgradable. The issue is that this HC has a very dim display, already tried cleaning & resetting the internal ribbon cable, no luck. So hoping, That buying another non-plus HC, can flash the GT firmware or if not, Replace just the display.
