Meade should have them or an authorized dealer.

Astronomics.com is a good place. They carry most everything or know where to get it.

Your DEC is the same as your Latitude--

Right Ascension does not matter for now. Polar Align the scope on the star Polaris-- read this:

http://arnholm.org/astro/polar_alignment/index.html

Once you are polar aligned, rotate the tube to a star in the sky that you KNOW the name of. Look up the Right Ascension of that star on a cell phone app or a laptop planetarium program like this one:
www.stellarium.org

Rotate the RA setting circle so it matches what the phone or laptop indicate. LOCK down the RA circle. Your scope is now adjusted to the sky and you can use the numbers on the DEC and RA to find other objects of known RA & DEC.

Can you describe how to use RA and DEC to find objects. I can find the planets ect....


Once the scope is polar aligned move it to a named star that you can identify. Look up the RA and DEC for that NAMED star in any planetarium phone APP or a laptop running any planetarium software like the free software available at www.stellarium.org

Adjust the circles to MATCH the RA and DEC in the planetarium software, and lock them down.

Now you can use them to find other objects of known RA and DEC.

Could be either-- problem. Check for a cable not fully seated on the circuit board. If it is not a loose cable then the board will need to be repaired by Meade or someone who does electronic circuit repairs.

Meade lx-90 dec printed circuit board bad. where


Since you already disassembled the scope-- you can send the board to Ron Sampson and he should be able to repair it. He fixes main boards and hand controllers (including the screen and keyboard on the hand controller!)

If you post a message on the Yahoo LX90 group looking for Ron Sampson he will answer you. You can then email or phone him for instruction on how to send him the board.

ARE YOU SURE it's the board? It could be a bad keyboard or a bad cable on the hand controller. You should get another hand controller and cable and test it before you send it off. Can you borrow a hand controller and cable from anyone.... or from a local scope retailer?

You broke something??? Possibly this clutch kit will help you repair the scope-- or a return to Meade will be required.

Dec fix kit for Meade LX50. Need new gears for the Dec motor. There was an aftermarket fix for this, but so far I have been unable to locate.


Dr. Clay Sherrod performs telescope upgrades, he can probably help.
Try the following links: http://www.arksky.org/supercharge.htm

LX90 Dec pointing out by 4 degrees over run


Go onto www.cloudynights.com and post this in the LX member forum-- and or go on YAHOO groups and post this in the LX90 forum--

Are you absolutely sure that your TIME and DATE and DAYLIGHT SAVINGS (yes-no) are correct.

On my LX90 the first alignment star is always NOT in the eyepiece but everything is OK once I center both alignment stars.
