I know they sell the combo, but I have heard that Celestron likes to under-size their mounts. The specs online claim that the CGX mount has a 55 lb payload capacity, and that the OTA is 28 pounds (does this include the finder and mounting rail?), leaving 27 pounds for camera and accessories, which seems like it should be plenty. Accessories would probably be limited to:
- A GSO dual speed Crayford focuser
- A 2" Barlow lens element (not the whole Barlow; and by the way, you can use a standard Barlow with an EdgeHD scope, yes?)
- a 2" UV/IR cut filter
- a few 2" spacers
- A ZWO ASI183MC camera
This doesn't seem like it would come anywhere close to 27 pounds, so I feel like I should be fine, yes?
