Question about Meade ETX-90 (48x90 mm)

2 Answers

I have a Meade ETX 90 EC with a problem with the declination lock (verticle lock). I talked with a Meade tech rep who said to remove the know, but it will not come off. He also said they no longer stock parts. So, how to remove the know and once that is off, what can be done?

I have a Meade ETX-90/ec telescope, the verticle lock knob will not thighten. It appears to be stripped. how can I fix it? Where can I get a parts list? Thank you


The bolt is stripped away from the plastic knob-- TAKE THE vertical lock knob off and inspect the bolt head-- you can use a STRONG glue to fix it -- epoxy or something similar.

How3 do you remove the mirror from ETX-125-EC for cleaning?


YOU DO NOT! This is a Maksutov style telescope. These must be collimated on an optical bench if the tube is dis-assembled. Meade can do the cleaning properly and or Dr. Clay in Arkansas.

Meade etx-80 sticking


Some (not all) versions have an end stop - it it just reaching that? The scope will rotate only aboit 3 complete turns between the 2 ends.

The 'correct' starting position is as follows: Place scope on tripod or table with control panel at the West. Unlock the declination lock (horizontal slew). Rotate scope anticlockwise until it hits the end stop, Then roate it back clockwise until scope is pointing North (should be about 3/8 of a turn, as the end stop is at South West). Then lock the declination, Set the tube horizontal and continue with the alignment process.

Autostar always thinks you have set the position like that. If you haven't, it will work OK until it tries to rotate past the point it won't go, then chaos results!
