I recently purchased the C150HD and have been very impressed with it. The CG4 mount is very stable and makes it a joy to use. Also, the finder scope adjustments screws works so well that aligning the finder can be done in minutes. Mine hasn't needed to be adjusted since. I added a dual axis drive motors (Celestron) from Anacortes for only 155.00. Orion, I believe charges 249.00. I have discovered that to do prime focus photography with the C150HD you need a barlow lens before you reach the focus point. This really increases the exposure time. Hope this helps.
