Powerstar 4 system's Lumicon SKY VECTOR II v2.70 has 3500 deep space objects in its data base which can be accessed after pointing the scope to two objects in the sky. Two digital encoders provide feedback for the Powerstar drive.
The drive system can be powered by the 19' AC/DC 9v transformer; the 15' long 12v car lighter adapter chord to the scope allows remote usage away from the power grid or a 6ea. 1.5v battery holder giving 9v output can be used to power the drive motors via the hand control box. The 6AA battery holder that came with this scope has cracked due to age so it requires repalcement with a unit from Radio Shack in a series C or D- cell size to have longer usage from the larger batteries. The interface cable fromthe old holder can be connected to the new holder.
Photo #3 shows some paint flaking on the motor housing, cause unknown but can be repaired with a good Krylon paint. Flaws are in that general area only.
