Question about Meade 114EQ-ASTR Equatorial Reflector Telescope

1 Answer

I picked up a used Meade 114 EQ AS on the off

I picked up a used Meade telescope on the off chance it might have all the parts. I have never had a telescope but always wanted one especially now that I live in the country. My problem is ..... I know this is going to sound really dumb but where exactly do you look in and where can I go to find out if all the parts are here? The Model info is 114 EQ AS and also says D=114mm F=1000mm f/8.8 and I'm not sure but it looks like the 114 EQ ASTR Equatorial Reflector Telescope. I would love to get into astrology!

First go to Meade's manual web site -- look under the REFLECTOR heading and download a manual. Here:

Second-- It's NOT ASTROLOGY! It's Astronomy!

Astrology is completely fake and superstitious belief that the planets and stars affect your life!

The MIRROR is on the bottom of the telescope- this is called a REFLECTOR style telescope. The focuser is on the TOP (side) of the telescope. Make sure the focuser end is UP and the mirror is on the bottom pointed toward the GROUND.

I have just inherited a L'optic modern Ltd Reflecting Telescope Model OMA 402, but with no assembly or useage instructions - are you able to assist? Very many thanks


This is an unknown imported reflecting style telescope. No manuals exist-- however they all assemble and are used in the same way. Here is a very similar scope made by Meade the manual for this is available at the link below:

Looking for a manual for Meade 114 EQ-DH. Also looking for the CD that comes with the telescope.


Look under 4.5 inch Reflector on Meade's manual web site:

http://www.meade.com/manuals/index.html


You do not need the CD -- the software on the CD is located on Meade's web site for free download-- here:

Meade DS 2000 Goto Reflector scope. I am looking for the base goto motor assembly housing witch houses the motor and gears. Can anybody please help?


You cannot actually get parts for this scope other than from Meade directly-- and possibly a USED motor on Ebay. Usually Meade wants you to send in the scope for repair and will not sell you any gears or motors.

I have a Meade RB-70 telescope and have stripped the gears in the vertical adjuster - Meade no longer has the parts available


Only Meade would have the repair parts. Sorry. You will need to either use it as is, or purchase another telescope.

The telescope TUBE could be re-mounted on a photo tripod and used manually if you want to do this.

Need a "Starfinder" control box for a Meade #4504 telescope (10 yrs old). Tried E-bay, Craigslist, etc.


Very doubtful you will find this part. Meade does not support this telescope anymore. It may be possible to find a used one on Astromart.com by placing a WANT AD-- it will cost you $12 to register and place the ad.

Can you repair certain parts of the telescope? is there a place where i can take it to get repairs?


Meade can repair these - call their customer service department here:
http://www.meade.com/support/index.html

Some repair parts can be purchased from Meade but not very many. Meade usually wants you to send in the telescope for most repairs.

Call them at the phone number listed on the above web site.
