    Default Mount for Explore Scientific 5" Refractor



    Explore Scientific 127 ED 5" refractor.

    Is there a mount adapter (dovetail assembly) for the 127 ED so that it will fit on my Celstron CFE Pro equatorial mount?

    Being as how "F" is next to "G" on the keybord, I would surmise that he has, indeed a CGE Pro, and big fingers.

    Yes, Celestron CGE Pro mount.

    Here is a picture of the dovetail on an Explore Scientific 5" refractor. Will it fit a CGE Pro mount, or what do I need to make it fit?
