If you still have those tracking motors, I could take them off your hands! http://www.flickr.com/people/jasmel90/
>This was my first scope. If it came with a better mount and tripod, I could have rated higher. I cut my teeth with this tube and the optics are great. At it's price, one can assume some fixing up is in order. I have hardwood legs and a higher quality diagonal on it now. I did get the tracking motors but took them off. I perfer to track manually for now as I don't do imaging which would require something better than the cg5. I highly recommend it because of the optics and price. Oh, I replaced the 6x30 finder too.
