    It's not a battery- it's a plastic holder that you insert 10 AA batteries into and insert into a plastic envelope. Then it has a long cord with a plug-in that plugs into the telescope. But thanks for the input!

I found a supplier that has the holder for $1.92, but the shipping is $14.99 - - -so, there's a question of how bad do you want the battery holder ?

    RE: Meade DS-114-EC Telescope "Battery Holder"

    I've done a good amount of research on finding you the battery case for the above telescope.

    I haven't had any success finding parts for Meade products so I still believe your best option is to go to an actual Radio Shack Store and have them make you up a comparable battery pack. They are very competent at this!

The 360 rotation motor runs (Motor can be heard rinning) But the scope wont rotate. As the product is out of waranty, is it a problem that I could fix my self, as i'm pretty handy with a screw driver...

You can send this into Meade for repairs.

Or you can disassemble the base and look inside. I suspect you have either a loose or broken worm gear inside the base. There are manuals available on the Meade web site but they do not give any disassembly instructions. Call Meade at the phone number above or try taking apart the base and look inside. Only Meade will have replacement parts.

I purchased a Meade DS-90AT at a garage sale but it is missing the battery pack (the holder for 10 AA batteries). I called Meade and learned it is no longer available. Any suggestions as to what I can...

You can use any 12 volt power pack like a car starter battery pack-- with the proper cigarette lighter style power cord.

Just buy one with a cigarette lighter style plug-in port- 12 volt-- you can find these at auto parts stores for about $49.

The motor that rotates the scope does not engage i need to replace a gear

Meade will probably NOT sell you the part. They usually want you to return the scope to them for repairs. Contact their customer service department and ask if you can buy the part ?

I got a mead ds-114 telescope. & don't know how to use it!

the eye piece that came with your scope is too powerful... look on ebay or a site that sells telescopes. also look at the size of your eye piece holder... my ds-114 came with a 0.96 holder, these are an odd size.. the other size is 1.25 and the eye pieces are much easier to find. try looking at the moon when it is cresent shaped and start from there. if you have the autostar, you have to go through a set up sequence to start. then the scope will track the objects that you select on the goto function. don't give up!

Meade DS-2000 Manual Doesn't have info. about Meade Ds-2130

ds-2000 refers to the model line of the scope. ds-2130 the 130 refers to the diameter of the objective lens in mm. I have a ds-2114. Where the objective lens is 114 mm in diameter. as far as the manual goes everything else should be the same.
