Question about Meade LX200R 8 in. (600 x 203mm) Telescope
The smart drive on the telescope wont work. I checked the adapter and replaced the battery, but when I switch it to own nothing happens.
What eles can I check?
Sorry for late response -- I just found your posting.
You did not say which Meade telescope you have -- however-
There should be a light somewhere on the telescope that lights up when the power is on-- if this is not glowing-- double check your batteries-- better yet use an outside 12 volt power pack and the proper Meade cigarette lighter style plug.
No power --- nothing will work-- Meade has a customer service phone number here-- on their web site-
