    You'd unlock the simulator from its case, lift it by the handlebars and
    place it over the dome of the KS-120/KS-140 star tracker. In other
    words, the interface is on the bottom of this thing, like in Frank's
    drawing. Whether it fits over the MD-1 I can only guess at.
    
    The square base with orange rubber feet is, I think, not part of the
    instrument, rather it's part of the case.
    
    I don't think the small prism-port is the main interface to the star
    tracker. An inspection port?
