hi all, I've been away from astronomy for a while and I'd really like to get back into it. I have an old C8 that I bought used many years ago; it's probably 25 years old now. It came with a clock drive and an equatorial fork mount. I'd like to upgrade the mounting to use the new computerized alignment and pointing that's been developed for the Celestron line since then. Can I upgrade the mount without buying a whole new scope? What options are there? Thanks for any advice
