Just got my new CGX-L today and after using everything but a crowbar and blowtorch, I finally got the tripod into my JMI Wheelie Bars!!! Everything else went pretty well until I put the NP127is/QHY16200A and the TV-85/60Da (still no word on my ASI6200MM) and tried to balance them. It seems that I didn’t get the SBS Adapter quite tight enough and both scopes and cameras almost slid out of the mount....luckily my wife Patty was right by my side to tighten it up or I would have been out some serious Bucks!!! I don’t want to jinx myself but even with cords dangling everywhere and a lousy job of balancing and just hurriedly hooking everything up...it seems to be guiding pretty good...RMS .10. So far I’m a happy camper....still a LOT TO LEARN...totally different than my CGEM-DX!
Oh I forgot to mention, Anthony at ADM designed the side by side adapter for the CGX-L and I needed an adapter for my Polemaster. He FaceTimed me on Wednesday to make sure that I got what I needed and I had it delivered today!!! THAT IS SOME GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE!! I would highly recommend his products...I’ve bought plenty of them but had never talked to him....he’s a GREAT GUY!! Thanks Anthony!!
