Meade DS 2000 Goto Reflector scope. I am looking for the base goto motor assembly housing witch houses the motor and gears. Can anybody please help?


You cannot actually get parts for this scope other than from Meade directly-- and possibly a USED motor on Ebay. Usually Meade wants you to send in the scope for repair and will not sell you any gears or motors.

You will need to experiment replacing the lens in various configurations to see what works.

Next time NEVER disassemble an eyepiece or a telescope lens. Only the outside surfaces ever need cleaning.

Dont know if i put the lenses in right on my tasco 25x30mm handheld telescope i cant focus on anything or c through it i took it apart to clean it


This is a TOY telescope of only 30mm-- smaller than a pair of 10x50mm binoculars. Throw it away and get a useful telescope.

Here is the one you should buy:

I have a Meade ETX 60. The internal threaded rod that focuses the telescope is broken. Can I get a replacement ? I already have this taken apart and have removed the rod.


You can call Meade, they might sell you a rod??? Usually they want you to send the scope back to them for repair.

My 9t eye piece was rattling and mislined. I took it apart cleaned lenses and wondered is there a lense location or direction?


Never disassemble an eyepiece unless you know exactly how to put it back together. Only the outer glass lens ever needs cleaning.

Without knowing exactly what link of eyepiece you have (they are all different designs) it's impossible to tell you which way the internal lenses go.

Your best bet may be to simply purchase another eyepiece.

Gears will not hold telescope


This is a common problem in the DS series. The altitude slewing mechanism has a design flaw that will cause the jack screw to back off of the axis gear, and get the screw caught on the internal body of the mount. It also tends to crush the jack screw against the motor spindle.

Meade does not sell replacement parts. You'll have to send the mount to them to have it repaired.

Telescope broken


You will not find parts for these telescopes-- however Meade can repair them if you send them in.

Meade does not sell parts for their telescopes --
