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!

Where do I plug in my battery pack on my meade jupitar 114EQ-DS?


The telescope does not use a battery, only the optional motor drive uses batteries and they fit in the motor drive.

The focal tube on my Meade DS 114 has several stripped teeth. The auto-focus skips and jumps! Where can I find a replacement part (Meade no longer carries them) OR how can I repair this; ie, create new...


You will need to buy another focuser like one of these.

You must flip the internal mirror between the upright view port and the rear camera port. See page #6 in this manual and look at #8 on that page.

Inherited brand new meade 114 DS telescope, put it together, but how the heck do you take off the dust cover of the main tube...I simply cannot figure it out! the customer care center not open yet, any...


It just pulls out!

I wonder if you are trying to remove the wrong end?
The end that opens to the sky is the one next to the eyepiece holder. If you're trying the other end which has lots of screws for adjusting the mirror, I hope you've not upset the delicate alignment!

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.
