can I use stellarium with lumicon sky vector digital setting circles? I have a avx mount for goto refractor and a push to for my pier mounted  sct  I want to setup both scopes and use one program to show telescope positions for both scopes.  I have the sky level 2 version 5.00.108 for the push to mount. any info on this idea? :undecided: does it work?.....thank you in advance

You'd need a driver. Stellarium does not include a built-in driver for the Tangent Based DSCs, only for Argo Navis. The option, then, is to use ASCOM (via the Stellarium Scope helper app)...but you still need a driver for Tangent based DSCs like the Sky Vector. There are ASCOM drivers for Sky Commanders and some other DSCs...but I don't know about one for your box. ;)
