Review by:
I purchased the Audiostar Controller as a replacement for my #497 Autostar Controller, and this product is all that I expected. Although I had no problems with my original controller, the audiostar provided a significant improvement with the audio component and an expanded data base. The recent acquisition of the audiostar has renewed my enthusiasm to observe the night sky with my ETX 125 PE. (Posted on 1/24/2016)
