Question about Discovery Channel Meade 8" LX90-GPS Telescope with UHTC

1 Answer

Elevation motor stopped working....

My lx90 scope was working fine until the other night and the elevation motor stopped...the hand box indicated that the motor was not working.
I reset the system, and the elevation motor worked erratically, on, off, on, off....so I reset it again, and now no elevation motor function at all. The rotational motor (azimuth?) works ok... all speeds ok, but the altitude motor won't function.
I would like to get a hold of a break-away parts diagram and any help to get this motor running again.

How to reset bushnell elevation adjustment to zero?


If you want to center the cross hair in the scope
Rotate elevation down to it stops then count up clicks to it stops then half number and rotate down that number then repeat with windage or you could use two v blocks and view a point through the scope and rotate scope and adjust cross hair until no deviation from a fixed point up or down left or right
Hope this helps

Pro Form C525. Then incline motor works with a


The repair for this is usually a new elevation motor. However if elevation isn't a big issue for for you, you can disconnect the elevation motor and use treadmill like that. The elevation motor doesn't go out that often. You should check with a local repair person. They may have a used one laying around. I usually keep one on hand to test with.

Is this going make diffirents in at the Range or on the hunt?


Your problem is in the bases/rings. Remove the scope from the rings. Lay a straight edge in the bottom of the rings. The straight edge should touch both rings equally. If i understand you right, you have run out of adjustment up. If so, there will be a gap on the front ring. Verify that you have the correct bases for your rifle first of all. Then, depending on the rifle, you may be able to swap the front and rear bases/rings and correct the problem. Check alignment as above. NOTE: After rings are corrected, re-center scope elevation. Turn elevation screw on scope one way untill it stops. Count the clicks as you turn back to the opposite direction. Devide the clicks by two. Turn back the other way by that number. Your scope is now centered. Test fire at 25 yards. When close to zero, move back to 100 yards and fine tune.

Windage and elevation adjustment all over the place


Sounds like you want to "re-sight" in your rifle. Make sure mounts are okay and tight. Look down barrel and then thru scope and eyeball windage and elevation adjustments so the scope seems to be fairly in line.

Clean barrel if it needs it.

For basic sight in, start at 25 yards with a large(3 to 4 feet) cardboard or wood backdrop around target (bullseye). Fire at target. Once done, look through scope and position rifle such that the shot mark you created is dead zero. Hold rifle very steady and you or buddy move windage and elevation adjustments until scope moves dead zero back toward original target (bullseye). Fine tune from there. Air cool rifle between rounds. Once dead eye, fire another round or two to check grouping. Check your ballistics (sometimes on ammo box) to see how height at 25 yards affects your desired dead on target (100 yards, 150 yards, 250 yards etc.). Adjust accordingly. Example: you may need to sight in at an inch high at 25 yards, depending on your dead on target distance..

Always remove sling from barrel when sighting in.

Try to sight in at similar temperature as you intended shooting temperatures, if possible.

If not black powder, avoid cleaning barrel between sight in and hunt/competition unless you note bad buildup inside.

If you change ammo, understand that that may affect performance. Once a preferred ammo is found, some even try to buy a decent quantity with the same lot number on the boxes if storage allows for such.

Scope out of elevation adjustment


If you are sure that the scope was mounted correctly to begin with, ie plenty of elevation left THEN you can install a slanted rail that will increase you elevation potential. Of course, that comes at the cost of having less elevation at the lower end.

A second solution is rings, like those by Burris with the plastic inserts. They have an accessory insert kit for these Signature Zee rings that will let you increase your elevation. Rings are ca 30 and the kit'll be ca 10, so 40 total.

If you're just missing a wee bit of elevation you could just lightly shim the scope in your current rings.

LX6 Hand controller....error message


If the hand controller on the LX6 has stopped working you have a problem since meade does not support this very old telescope. My only suggestion would be to place an ad on www.astromart.com looking for a new hand controller.

If the error message indicates a "motor fault" make sure you have a good power supply and or fresh batteries-- as low voltage will cause a motor fault error.

Later you said it was an LX90 LNT-- ?? so which scope do you actually own???
