Product Questions

Aloha OPT, can the stock Vixen saddle/clamp be replaced with a Losmandy D style saddle/clamp (or a Vixen/Losmandy dual type saddle)? If so, do you have any recommendations? Thanks!
Is this compatible with a Celestron C-8 scope?
does it have auto guider port??
How does the handset connect to the mount? RS232? How long can this cable be? If the mount is connected to a computer, does it use a different port, or does the computer replace the handset?
Is this brand new equipment, and therefore covered by Celestron's own 2-year warranty?
Which dovetail do I need to put on my old Nexstar 8 silver tube OTA that will attach to this mount?
Does this come with the handset controller?
What is the weight of tripod and mount? Thanks.
Does this mount have encoders with memory.For example,You aligned scope and are looking at mxxx;now you decide to look at Jupiter and you manually unlock the lock and manually move to Jupiter.Then now you want to slew back to mxxx will the mount remember its location and slew back to mxxxx?
is a tripod included (it's unclear) and if so, what's the model number of the tripod?
Does the mount come with the tripod?
I have your 6" f4 imaging Newtonian. I was wanting a quick and easy alt/az go-to mount for when im not doing astrophotography. Will this work for me?
I am interesting in getting a go to mount and tripod for traveling. When the tripod is collapsed how long is it? Can the mount be removed from the tripod and packed separately? I would like to fit it into a carry on suit case.
