Scope System

Should I get vibration suppression pads for my scope?

I have a Celestron CPC 1100 (11") The whole setup is heavy. Seems to me that the vibration is in the tube, not in the tripod. So should I spend the extra $50?

I have an 11 inch Celestron that has the same tube as yours, but probably a different mount / tripod (mine is the old CI-700) and it is as solid as a rock. I don't know what mount / tripod arrangement you have, but if it is one of the newer low cost versions, I suspect the problem is in the tripod. Vibration dampers for the feet will not solve this problem, unless there are minor earthquakes causing a forced response from the ground into the scope system. I suspect it is a simple resonant response with nodes at the ground. Putting dampers at the nodes does nothing to alter a resonant response. It will still vibrate, with dampers standing absolutely still while the whole scope shakes above it. I suspect that if the problem is severe, your only solution is to go with the CGE series mount. Sorry.
