Question about Meade ETX105EC Telescope w Autostar Controller 497 and Tripod 884
Bought on e-bay. The 90 degree eyepiece holder is missing. Meade's only answer is "the ETX is discontinued and we have no parts". Any suggestions?

You are missing a screw on cap for the rear port, and you need to buy several 1.25 inch eyepieces.
Scopestuff.com sells the rear port cap also you may be able to get one directly from Meade- http://www.meade.com/support/index.html
Several internet retailers sell 1.25 inch eyepieces.

Testimonial: "Thanks Joe! As it turned out I was also missing the 90 degree eyepiece holder."
Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the TOP of the scope eyepiece holder.
Practice focusing on a distant object during the daytime. It may take several turns of the focuser know.
Also check the TINY setscrew on the side of the focuser knob. It may be loose and need tightening so it will GRIP the focuser shaft.
