Can it be mounted on a CG-5?

Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better programs, and the universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the universe is winning.

Maybe for visual observing. Not for imaging though.

I don't think it's worth buying, there are too many modifications to do, first of all it will need a focuser, then a finder scope, something in the 12" bracket should suffice, a fan to cool the mirror down, a mount, dovetail bar and mounting rings, a large step ladder, it all adds up. Of course, not counting changing the car to a large truck to ship it to dark sky sites.

Nah, I think I'll pass, see if something else comes up.

Then again, it's wireless! Great for a permanent remote observatory
