Could be just a bad hand controller cable. Check with Meade for a new one.

Hi I have a meade ETX 105 pe I can get the scope to move Alt motion with the controller but it wont move in the Azimuth position with the controller. Might I be doing something wrong


This can be caused by 4 things-

A stuck button on the hand controller.

A bad hand controller cable

A burned out circuit board inside

A burned out Azimuth motor

(Long shot) bad firmware in the hand controller. DO a Reset and reload the firmware.

Try to borrow another hand controller and buy a new cable. If these two do not fix it then it's a mechanical problem or a circuit board problem inside the scope.

Meade can repair this but you will need to send them the scope:

My ETX-60 remote turns on but immediately turns back off, ive tried new batteries but it still turns right off, the red light on the telescope stays on but the remot doesnt, any fixes?


About the only thing you can do is buy another hand controller-- contact Meade for a new one.

I am assuming the hand controller cable cannot be replaced check it anyway and see if you can get someone to replace the plastic plug that goes into the telescope on the cable. Sometime these go bad. Any "network" cable guy should be about to replace the end.

Meade ETX 80 telescope missing parts


You are missing a screw on cap for the rear port, and you need to buy several 1.25 inch eyepieces.

Scopestuff.com sells the rear port cap also you may be able to get one directly from Meade- http://www.meade.com/support/index.html

Several internet retailers sell 1.25 inch eyepieces.

Here is one:

Meade "might" sell you the replacement part. But most likely they will want you to return the scope for repairs.

Can't focus my meade etx-125. have turned focusing control more than 80x in both directions. Is there an stop on the focusing system. Originally had the electric focusing system on the scope couldn't focus...


yup there is a mechanical stop to prevent you from cracking the mirror by retracting or extending it too far.. once you break the pin off it needs to go to the factory for dis-assembly as they have to remove the primary to get to it and realign it my 105 did same thing....word of advise use a cable extender for focus not an electric focuser they fail to tell you that it can over run the built in stops making your scope useless...i may be mistaken but i believe the max turns is 25 or about for end to end focusing adjustment on the 125
