  2. 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.

  5. Hi all, I have just received my new Sky Watcher Evostar 120mm from First Light Optics, and I would like to give the whole team there a FIVE STAR PLUS for service and delivery. These guys are the bee's knees, they do exactly what their shop web site says, ask a question, got a reply within a few minuets, bought the item, and a next day delivery was on offer, sadly I would not be in the following day, but I left a message for said item to be delivered today Friday 09-08-13, and its just arrived. so well done lads/lasses at First Light Optics. A very good service indeed.

  7. hi Lauries1, thank you for your comments. I do tweak the pic, ie a bit contrast and shadow, mirror image so the moon pic looks as seen by the naked eye, and yes I do have a bracket to hold the camera to the eyepiece
