Go to the LX200 Yahoo Group. They have diagrams in the files which you can access if you are a member of the group.

Meade has manuals on their web site here:

Ime looking for a meade LX200 users manual that comes with the scope


Most Meade manuals are available on their support site: http://www.meade.com/support/manuals/ . Scroll down through the list for the LX200 series manuals (in the Telescopes section). The LX200 manual is listed as the LX-200 Classic. The current link to this manual is http://www.meade.com/downloads/dl/file/id/10/product/0/lx200_classic_manual.pdf .

I hope this helps.

How or can I fix my meade lx 200 gps that is not sensing the home poisiton. It also rotates past the point wheree there should be a stop.


This can be caused by:

a bad hand controller cable (buy a new one)

a blown circuit board (only Meade can repair)

Improper setup-- read the manual and do all the setup, and initial alignment.

I just purchased a Polaris DS-60 by Meade and need a power supply and a operator & parts manual. Can you help me.


You can contact Meade for parts here:
http://www.meade.com/support/index.html

Here is the manual:
http://www.meade.com/manuals/TelescopeManuals/Reflectors/DS.pdf

It's a 12 volt power system, get the correct cigarette lighter style power plug from Meade -- it is center positive-- and use a 12 volt power pack like this one, or a car starter battery pack from Wal Mart. Make sure it has a cigarette style female plug.

http://www.google.com/products/catalog?q=celestron+power+pack&oe=utf-8&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a&um=1&ie=UTF-8&cid=10705665047058277989&ei=WAlaTM3MHYKB8gbYuq2ZDA&sa=X&oi=product_catalog_result&ct=result&resnum=3&ved=0CC8Q8wIwAg#

Call Meade first and discuss this with them.

Wiring to the Meade LX-50 RA Magellan decoder has separated from the circuit board in 4 places. Need schematic for the board to resolder. Any help here?


I have never seen a scematic published on the internet for the old Magellen hand controller. However there is a fellow that repairs LX200 and LX90 hand controllers who probably does have a schematic.

Go to the LX90 or LX200 Yahoo Group, sign up and post a message asking for help from Ron Sampson. You can send him the controller and it's VERY likely that he can repair it a nominal cost.

Hope that helps you-- by the way he repaired our Astronomy club's old LX200 Classic hand controller which had burned out circuits, and can even repair the keyboards and the screen.

10" Meade Fork, Quartz LX Pulse Drive


No schematics out there for that model, although there are ones for the LX classic and GPS. The center contact is positive.
