Q1. Will this work with a Celestron Nexstar 5se OTA?

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
