*It does have some optical issues. It was dissassembled and optics were messed with. I see some blueish smearing on the primarty and some light scuffs/scratches, although it does still provide very pleasing views. I can easily see orion nebula, andromeda galaxy, dumbell, ring, m33, globulars, I saw comet linear when it was at mag 8 to name just a few, all from my suburban back yard with moderate light pollution.
Wedge has a right accension drive, powered by a 9 volt battery that will last about 50 hours. Tracks decent once properly aligned.
This is a bargain scope with a lot of life left in her, and it would make an excellent beginner scope or for someone looking to take a step or two up in aperture size.
The hand controller is not included but can be purchased separetely for $50. The orion st80 is also sold separate.
I am also selling a bunch of accessories such as an orion st80 f/5 refractor, lots of eyepieces, om-1, radial guider, color filters, barlows, solar filter, laser collimator and more.
