Is Your Tasco 114 Computerised?

I bought a Tasco 11TR (I believe is the model number) about 11 years ago through some mail order catalogue. It came with some misc parts, gears etc, in case the user wished to add computer goto system. It's a 4.5" reflector, and has a 900mm focal length. About all I ever saw with it was the moon. I did see Saturn, but I had to use the least powerfull eyepiece included. Saturn looked like a fuzzy oval shaped star. I tried the included barlow with no luck. I think the thing probably came out of collmination, and the included eye pieces are junk. Probably with decent eye pieces and a collmination job, it might work OK. Tom is yours computerized?

HOWEVER;
If my %$###@*& 12" LX200 GPS would just finaly be delivered, I wouldn't waste my time with the old Tasco. The Tasco is for sale if anyone is interested, Cheap.
