An ultra-heavy-duty equatorial mount, the respected Celestron CG-5 mount has earned its good reputation amongst the amateur astronomy community because it is an affordable, stable beauty.   Now the computerized version, available on many of Celestron's finer scopes, is also available for purchase so that you can put any optical tube assembly that you like upon it.  The optional GPS accessory is highly recommended for incredibly accurate scope alignments.
