This is a Compustar from the late 80's A great goto mount with an 8" OTA. The tube is the original with Starbright coatings and still has very good optics.

The joystick has been modified for The attachment of an SBIG CCD camera so it can also autoguide. It comes with a 1/4" visual back, a 25mm ep,a 6x30 finder and bracket.
