Question about Meade 8" LX90 Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope non-UHTC w/Autostar Suite-LPI - MEA 0810-90-40
2 years old, minimal use. it takes a GPS fix and then goes to a manual alt-azimuth alignment for true north and horizontal declination rather than automatically doing this. the result is inaccurate alignment. can anyone help?
Replace the battery for the GPS.
Start from scratch.
Reset the hand controller, calibrate motors, train drives, calibrate sensors.
Make sure you have either fresh batteries, or better a seperate 12 volt power pack. The above will eleiminate everything except an actual BROKEN electronic part (such as a bad gps board).
If it still will not align using the gps, time to send it back to Meade for repairs. Make sure you have the latest firmware in the hand controller which is 43Eg. You can download the firmware using the UPDATER free software here:
