Yes, it will, but the SE OTA is side mounted, the CG5 is bottom mounted, when you mount the telesope to the CG5 the finderscope will be in a different place. If it going to be a problem, you can use a Rigel RDF finder that has sticky pads to attach it to the telescope.
The CG5 excepts a vixen dovetail which is the same as you have on your telescope
