Celestron CGE-M new mount

Hi, thanks for your intelligent replies! Any idea when the new Celestron EQ mount will start to hit the marketplace, and any idea of what price (aprox) it should sell at? I've seen a photo of this new mount on Photonika site from trade show last month but no other press. One final...will OpticsPlanet carry the much awaited Mitty Evolution Wedge for CPC scopes? Thank you, dave Ohmann, Marietta, Georgia

The new Celestron CGE, certainly, as we are a Celestron dealer. The Mitty, not likely or at least, not likely anytime soon, as we would have to add that vendor to our site.

Nothing definite from Celestron as far as price or availability, but I would expect it to be in the $3000 neighborhood, as with the current version. Will get back as soon as I hear something.
Thanks for posting with us
