    Default Hard head leads to even hard choice... CGX or Losmandy G-11 SLT



    I am hard headed and have more money than I do sense so I would apreciate some advice on which one of these two I should choose, upgrade or new purchase.
    Pro's for upgrading
    I can get credit for the AVX and only have spend another $1300 for the CGX

    Pro's for purchasing the Losmandy G-11 Slt
    If it is compatible with the AVX mount and starsense autoalign then I can keep the AVX head for use with my travel scope (E.S. 80MM Triplet ED APO) and use the G-11 SLT for heavy duty imaging setups. so what say you all?

    I'm pretty sure the G-11 is not compatible with the Celestron HC. Losmandy has its own controller for this mount. I'm also pretty sure you will need a bigger tripod for the G-11 than the AVX tripod.
