Need replacement drive motors for a Meade DS90 refractor

I purchased a Meade DS90 refractor (ebay purchase) about a year ago and now have a bit of time for some much needed maintanance.The problem is;is the person who previously owned this nice little scope apparently used quite a bit of force (possibly pliers or the=) on the gearshafts (arbors) of which both RA and DEC shafts were severely damaged.I have looked through the Meade website along with a few other sites looking for replacements and have found nothing.Does anyone have a link to a site that sells these motors?.
Thanks in advance!!!

Meade will repair this scope but you will need to send it to them-- they don't usually sell parts.

This is a small refractor telescope. Sorry no manuals-- BUT Meade scopes has a web site with all of their manuals. Look under the REFRACTOR heading for one that is similar to your scope. They all assemble and are used in a similar fashion.

Hi just purchased a used Sciencetech 262... Can anyone help me figure out how to put it together and use thank you

Sorry that is an off brand imported telescope. Never heard of that brand.

However, there are basically 3 styles of telescopes, a REFRACTOR, a REFLECTOR(that has mirrors), and an SCT with both a front corrector plate and a mirror.

You probably have either a refractor or a reflector. Meade maintains a web site with all of their manuals- lokk under the 4.5 inch Reflector heading, or the Refractor heading for one that is similar to your scope. They all assemble and are used in the same way.

I really need the owners manual for the Jason 200x Mercury Astronomical Telescope Model #404


This is a very simple refractor telescope. The eyepiece goes into the diagonal which is placed into the small end of the tube.

Here is a picture. Is this your scope?

As you can see it is for sale on Ebay at a very low cost. Here is a similar Meade telescope manual which you can read. They all assemble and are used the same way.

My Meade 90mm refractor with autostar has a stripped gear, crappy little nylon gear that drives the worm gear that rotates the telescope. Can I get relacement gears or do I have to get a new drive system....


No one but Meade makes parts for this scope. Do you intend to have a custom GEAR machined??? This will be more than just sending it back to Meade; which you will need to do to get it repaired.

Does it have a name on the scope? If it has a MIRROR in the bottom it is a REFLECTOR.

If it has a lens on the front it is a REFRACTOR. Look on Meade's manual web site under the header REFRACTOR or REFLECTOR for one similar to your telescope.

Meade/auto star problem


You never said what model. The CD ROM only contains free planetarium software which you can also down load on Meade's web site here:

www.meade.com look under the Customer Service link.

Motor Faults are usually caused by low power and or a broken part.

If you have CALIBRATE MOTORS feature in the hand controller do this first. If it still does not work, RESET the hand controller, reenter date, time, and SITE, and calibrate motors again.

If this does not work something is broken inside the scope.

Meade has a web site with their manuals:

Try these two links. Your small refractor assembles in a similar fashion.

Missing the eye piece for the Meade saturn 60az-m


ebay is a great resource for eyepieces, i would suggest a 26mm ma.
the eyepiece should drop in. if not you might be missing the image erecting diagonal. when the eyepiece is installed you should be looking perpendicular at the tube.
