Question about Meade DS114-EC Telescope
The gears on the tripod that hold the telescope are stripped or very loose. The telescope will fall forward or backward depending on how you move it. Is there replacement parts anywhere to fix this problem?
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.
