How to leave feedback on classifieds purchase

Posted By Marc Gimbel

I purchased an item through the Astromart classifieds about 2 weeks ago and would like to leave positive feedback for the seller, but can no longer find the ad. Is there a way to do this?

Upgrade Motor on CPC800?

Posted By Marc Gimbel

I'm wondering whether the motor in a Celestron CPC800 may be beefed up to handle additional drag due to added equipment? I have mounted a SV90 Raptor atop my CPC, but notice that the drive groans a bit when lifting the OTA with this added weight. The 90 adds about 15lbs of weight considering the rings, rail, focuser, diagonal and eyepiece. See attached pic.

Any thoughts? Thanks,

Which Pelican Case for CGE Pro Mount?

Posted By Marc Gimbel

I just picked up a CGE Pro mount and would like to pick up a Pelican case for it. Does anyone have a Pelican case they use to transport this mount, and if so, which model case is it?

Other suggestions re: a good case for transporting this mount would also be welcomed.
