    Question orion astroview on cg4 mount



    Sorry for the noob question, but can an orion astroview 90mm be mounted on a celestron cg4 mount? I read that the cg4 mount is much more stable than the eq-1 that came with my astroview. If it's possible, would i need to purchase adapters to make it work?

    Thanks

    You will need to remove and reuse the rings from your current mount since the dovetail is built into the head of the mount. Then bolt the rings to a new dovetail plate such as this. https://agenaastro.com/agena-8-anodi...er-mounts.html
    It will then attach directly into the dovetail saddle on the CG-4
