Orion 13161 StarSeeker IV 150mm GoTo Reflector Telescope This is an open box returned telescope that is either slightly used, or new condition. I have tested this to the best of my very limited ability and everything seems to work as intended. I used batteries for my power source. The unit powers on, goes through the motions of setting up, the altazimuth mount turns the telescope and the hand controller seems to operated fine as well.Cosmetically this unit appears to be new to me. I can't find anything that sticks out as being used or abused other than the manual has writing in it. My theory is that either the previous owner used it for one particular astrological event and sent it back, or they couldn't figure out how to use it at all so they returned it. But I do not know for certain and that's why it's being sold for parts.
- The telescope is only missing the PC interface (serial) cable - this is a cheap and common cable.
- Based on the parts list from Orion's actual listing, these units only come with an auto lighter plug for the DC power cable. I will include this parts list verbatim at the bottom of the page.
- I am also going to assume that the Starry Night SE astronomy software digital download has already been used by the previous owner and is downloaded on the computerized hand controller? No way for me to know.
I have made this telescope sound worse than it actually is in order to try and be thorough and complete but actually this is a remarkable unit in the original box as well. Batteries not included.Please see photos for details. Feel free to ask any questions necessary before bidding or purchasing. SOLD AS IS. FREE SHIPPING TO THE CONTINENTAL UNITED STATES.
