Good day! How is this mount different from CG-5GT? Which one is better for astrophoto? Levenhuk Customer Service:
The difference is in 2 counterbalances and the availability of a pole finder in the Levenhuk Ra EQ5 GoTo mount. Both mounts are perfect for astrophotography, but 2 counterbalances make the process more convenient (easier to balance different telescopes and combinations of one telescope with different cameras).
