CG-5 Computerized — GoTo convenience and GPS compatibility for precision accuracy

We are proud to offer a computerized GoTo version of Celestron's sturdy CG-5 mount. Couple this solid mount with the included computerized control system to utilize many of the same functions and features — like the NexStarcomputer control system and an Autoguider port for long exposure deep sky astrophotography — as Celestron's most advanced GoTo telescopes.

GoTo models are also upgradeable to GPS with the optional SkySync GPS Accessory (#93969) allowing your telescope to pinpoint your position on the earth, the date and time.
