Celestron CGX Equatorial Telescopes

Celestron’s engineering team applied their years of experience designing German Equatorial mounts to the all-new CGX, a culmination of all the advancements made to our technologies. By refocusing our design efforts and anticipating the needs of today’s visual observers and astroimagers, Celestron has achieved a new level of "state-of-the-art" with the all new CGX German equatorial mount. Compact. Solid. Innovative. Totally redesigned with a lower profile, CGX is sturdier and more rigid than its predecessors with several new innovative features and new control software ideally suited for automation and remote operation.

  • All-new design. Sturdier and more rigid with quicker dampening time
  • Increased load capacity to 55 lbs.
  • Improved motors provide more torque, better slewing and tracking under heavy loads

Heavy Duty belt-drive system minimizes backlash while providing smooth motor operation under heavy loads 

  • Spring-loaded brass worm wheel and stainless steel worm gear reduce friction and provide optimum gear mesh
  • Internal cabling for worry-free remote operation. Power input and accessory ports remain stationary while the mount slews to avoid snags
  • Internal optical sensors on both axes for simple and safe remote operation
  • Internal hard stops for both axes prevents cable tension and tripod strike

  • Home sensors allow the mount to always start in the index position regardless of orientation before a power reset
  • Limit sensors automatically shut off slewing or tracking before reaching the hard stop fail safe
  • Brand new control software developed in conjunction with PlaneWave Instruments for professional level control operation and imaging
  • Software includes multi-point mount modeling for extremely precise pointing accuracy and many more additional features for remote astroimaging
  • Wider tripod stance for improved stability
  • Adjustable EQ head position to optimize center of gravity over the tripod and fully utilize the increased 3º-65º latitude range
  • Dual-fit CG-5/Vixen and CGE/Losmandy dovetail saddle


  • 2" steel legs with height index marks for quick leveling
  • "Jack of all trays" can hold three 1.25" eyepieces, two 2" eyepieces, your smartphone, or other accessories
  • +20º of additional tracking past the meridian on either side
  • Tripod legs can be collapsed with accessory tray installed for faster setup and transport




  • Two handles for easy pickup and transport
  • All-new ergonomically designed dovetail clamping knobs
  • Innovative and improved polar alignment adjustment system
  • All-new ergonomic latitude adjuster for smooth and easy adjustment under full loads
  • Optional add-on polar axis finderscope - coming soon


  • All-new NexStar+ hand control with USB port
  • Two AUX accessory ports to support wireless/WiFi alignment and operation with StarSense AutoAlign and SkyPortal WiFi Module accessories (sold separately)
  • USB 2.0 port, used to connect directly to PC with included software
  • Autoguider port
  • PPEC ready
  • Threaded 12VDC power input barrel connector
  • Internal Real Time Clock (keeps time and site information saved)
