|My first Telescope bought in 1979. The Optical Tube Assembly (OTA) is a generic 6", f/5 reflector. The mount is a Meade
German Equatorial Mount with an AC worm gear drive. An optional Joy Stick Control allowed some simple manually control
of the R.A. and Declination drives. This was high-tech stuff for amateur astronomy back in 1979-80.

When I packed my car for college I had very little room. The telescope was the
first thing packed.
