Question about Celestron CGE German Equatorial Computerized Mount with Tripod - 91524 w/FREE UPS Telescope

1 Answer

CGE mount sizes. (not inc. tripod)

Hello.
I'm about to order a CGE mount. This will go onto my custom pier which currently suports a 14 inch wedge mounted LX200. I need to have a look at a technical drawing, with dimensions, of the mount to work out the size of the pier extension I will have to make, and also need to see how the base of the mount will connect to the pier.

Cheers
Rob

I have a giottos MTL 8360B tripod and I have lost one of the bolts/screws that clamps the centre column. Does anyone know how/where to order replacement parts? Thanks


Best to contact closest Giottos support or distribution centre in your country. Check this site. maybe first try your local camera shop.

GIOTTOS IND INC

Look like it may be a very old model as it is not showing up in the current product lists.

What kind of tires do I use for a 1999 Ford Escort ZX2 2.0 doc motor


Kathy

You can find a list of the recommended tires and pressures on a placard affixed to the driver door / jamb. This placard will also list the weight of the vehicle, and other information too. You should be able to look at the sidewall of the existing tires to determine the size. They will likely be either 185/65-14 or 185/60-15.

I looked at Tirerack.com and input your 1999 Ford Escort ZX2 and got these results. Apparently, two different sizes were standard for this car. They are: 185/65-14 and 185/60-15. The main difference is that one is mounted on a 14 inch rim and the other is mounted on a 15 inch rim (as indicated by the bold number in the size). Determine which size rim (by looking at the tire size you currently have) and replace with one of those listed above. This ONLY applies to factory rims. if they have been changed, all bets are off.

Any reputable tire shop or Automotive tire department (at Sears, etc.) should be able to get this info for you free of charge.

Good luck!

Hello I need to know if my AR-6 refractor for my LXD55 mount is a direct replacement for mounting on an LDX75 mount and tripod? Also would a CG-5 GEM hold an AR-6?


No-- you need a CG6 to accurately hold that 6 inch refractor.

Recommend that you look at the Celestron 6 inch SCT-- or the Astro-Tech RC6, which can be mounted on that CG5.

What size is the bolt and thread size needed for the tripod mount on the Canon G12 digital camera?


Hi Winterhawk.

I think you'll find all camera tripod mount stuff is termed 1/4-20. That's 0.25 inches diameter, 20 threads per inch.

Obviously you want to make your bolt short so you don't crack the camera case, strip the bolt, or otherwise get into trouble.

I am looking for advice on how to mount a Ball Head on the plate of a regular tripod, So far I have not found a Ball Head that has the same size thread in the bottom. Is an adapter available as a solution....


The bottom threads on most tripod heafs are 3/8", but some are 1/4"/ The mounting screws on MOST tripods are 3/8", but I have seen `/4" (especially on monopods. IF:
tripod=3/8 head = 1/4 need mounting plate 3/8 female to 1/4 male
tripod = 1/4 head - 1/4 nothing
tripod 3/8 head 3/8 nothing'
tripod 1/4 head = 3/8 there is an adapter/reducer that screws into the 3/8
' female and reduces that to 1/4"

Hello,

Cameras have a threaded hole underneath. See this photo:

Need dimensions for CG-5 cinch-down bolt


Don, if you mean the handscrew that retains the mount in the hub, I believe that it's a common 10mm. Should be able to get one a big box hardware. I have seen CG-5s with the hole bored out and retreaded to 1/2NC to mount on a Meade HD Field Tripod. HTH, Geo.

Solidex camcorder tripods


OKAY!! Thanks to the reply of "Baldwink", I was able to locate the product he suggested here in the U.S. from several dealers. This is the plate that mounts to the camera and allows easy removal/attachment to the tripod.

For the Solidex VT-90 tripod (the one I have and may fit others), order the Cullman CU-40470 Quick Release Plate. This is also described as the "Cullman Medium Quick Release 42mm" plate.

If you don't have the VT-90, measure the shoe plate area on top and remember that there will be at least one beveled (angled) area. Mine measured exactly 42mm square, so I am confident that the Cullman plate will fit. Also, the standard thread size for camera mounting is 1/4", but there are some cameras that use 3/8", so you might want to double check your camera for this spec.

I googled "cullman 40470 quick release" and found several U.S. dealers. The best price was from Adorama.com at $14 plus $5 ground shipping. Some dealers want as much as $33.

After nearly 20 years, I can use my Solidex VT-90 again!
