Novag Constellation Expert (model 853)
The Novag Constellation Expert dates from 1985. It was nicknamed “The Monster” possibly because of it’s tendency to give club players a good thrashing. Until then league players tended to hold chess computers in some contempt, but all that was changing, first with the Super Constellation, then with Novag’s first auto sensory wood board the Constellation Expert.
This Expert is likely running at the usual 5 MHz. It has 64K ROM, 4K RAM, a David Kittinger program and 22,000 ply opening book. The Selective Search rating is 1840 Elo. It measures 47 x 40 cm.
As can be seen from the photos the board itself is in very nice condition and it is fully working.
It comes with the nicely carved original chess pieces, original manual in English and the original UK type adaptor.
