No right ascension circle. RA and Dec sensor and LED readout needs repair though is partially functional. Keypads for variable rate slewing in all directions.
All attached finder scopes (Celestron 8” Schmidt-Cassegrain, Celestron 4” Schmidt-Cassegrain with 1” finder, 4” refractor, 1.5” refractor), covers, counter-weight system, assorted 2” mirror diagonals, and a variety of eyepieces are also included.
