Does anyone have any opinions on the CG-5 mount? Specifically, I'm looking at purchasing a C9.25-SGT with starbright XLT coatings. It's between this and the meade LX90 . The extra 1.25" of apature for less than $200 more is appealing. I haven't been able to find much on this scope. It would be a first-time scope for my fiance and I, but I want one we can enjoy for a long time. Astrophotography is also a possible interest somewhere in the future. I've read that a good German equlatteral is better than a fork mount, but is the CG-5 a good mount?

Advise is much appricieated.
