  1. Hi all, i am not an absolute novice having at least 20 years observing and a bit solar and moon astrophotography in the bag, I have a question .........I am purchasing a celestron advanced vz goto mount and I wish to know if this mount can handle a skywatcher evostar 150mm f8 scope ...........and if the celestron wifi navigation plug in actually works as good as advertised. thank you in advance. Peter.
