Question about Meade LX200GPS Telescope
I am a recent proud owner of a brand-new Meade LX200 GPS (10")
telescope. Living out here in Zambia, Southern Africa, it was quite
a relief to receive the delicate instrument intact as it was shipped
from a Meade dealer in the USA!
I am however, experiencing problems in getting the "Go-To" feature
to function properly. I have attempted to fully the instructions to
the letter, but still end up with the initial acquisition star being
way out of the field of view. Could this be due to the fact that I
am in the southern hemeisphere? Is there an "idiot-proof" guide to
getting it right, specifically tailored to users in the southern
hemisphere? Please help!!
Thanks in advance for anyone able to help.
You can also hold down the MODE key for about 4 seconds and scroll through the scope info. Make sure you have the correct location coordinates ( Lat/Long) and the correct time set.
Select a bright object first such as a planet and GOTO it. Once you have manually centered it in the eyepiece, press ENTER and hold it for 6 seconds, the handset will say " Press ENTER to sync", press enter and you have updated the scope with the coordinates of that object.

a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
