Celestron AC Adapter - 5 Amp (CGEM, CGE Pro)
Key Features
  • For Celestron CGEM or CGE Pro Mounts
The AC Adapter - 5 Amp (CGEM, CGE Pro) from Celestron is made exclusively for their CGEM and CGE Pro mounts. It is designed to provide continuous power to the mount when an AC outlet is available. The barrel connector on the DC plug threads directly onto the mount's power jack and prevents power-offs due to the cable being inadvertently pulled out. It delivers up to 5 Amp @ 12 VDC which is sufficient power to run the CGEM or CGE Pro mounts loaded with heavy equipment. The switching-type, AC-to-DC power adapter, provides more power with less weight than a transformer-style adapter.

question

The Celestron 5 Amp power adapter says it only works with the CGEM and CGE Pro mounts. However, when trying to find a proper power adapter for my Celestron Advanced VX, the only other power adapter by Celestron is limited to 2.5 Amps. The Advanced VX mount requires up to 3.5 Amps (as listed in manual). Will 5 Amp power adapter work? The voltage input is the same and the barrels look the same as well (the Advanced VX also has a threaded connector)... what gives?
Asked by: Jeffrey
Jeff, The Celestron 5 Amp power adapter works great with the Advanced VX mount. The electronics of the mount is designed to work at 5 Volts voltage, and then draws different amounts of current depending on what motors etc. turned on and off. The maximum current it can draw is 3.5 Amps, so it requires a power source that can provide at least 3.5 Amps at 5 Volts. So the 5 Amps rating of the power adapter tells you the maximum current it can provide at 5 Volts, which is more than enough for the VX mount.Herb V.
