Can one buy an Orion Sirius mount NEW without the hand controller? I have read where individuals have purchased these "non-goto" Sirius mounts and are using EQMod etc..

Orion stopped selling the non-goto Sirius mount about a year ago. Somebody somewhere might still have one in stock -- but I doubt it.

Your best bet is to wait for one (with the controller) to show up in the clearance section at Orion. Then sell the goto controller. I bought one last year for $600 and sold the controller for $300.

Thanks for the input. I guess I'll have to wait on a clearance mount

The www.adorama.com site says they have them, but I would make sure their site is up to date.
