Question about Meade DS-2114 ATS (325 x 114mm) Telescope

1 Answer

I own a DS-2114 telescope. Recently the focuser wouldn't turn, and Meade sent me another one. After I replaced it when I went to use it objects could not be focused too well. What can be done to correct this issue? Thanks for your time. Pete

Hey Pete. I had the same problem.
You need to zero the whole thing and re allin it before the new focuser interlinks with the brains of the teliscope.

Just bought a starnavigator 114. Purchased a Barlow lens to use with my 26mm lens, but with the barlow I can't see anything. Do I need to make changes in the lens config. in the Autostar?


The barlow may be too much magnification for that aperture telescope. The higher the magnification the SMALLER the sweet spot is in focus.

Turn the knob slower and also practice focusing during the day time on a distant object.

WHEN VIEWING, I CAN CLEARLY SEE THE SPIDER VANES FROM THE SECONDARY MIRROR IN MY IMAGES


You are NOT in focus. Turn the focus knob-- use the eyepiece with the largest number written on it until you learn how to focus. You can practice during the day time on a distant objects.

Can see object through viewfinder, but no image when looking through eyepiece of optical tube


PUT the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser. Practice focusing on a distant object during the day time.

My telescope will not turn on.


Replace the batteries or try a separate 12 volt power source.

Also the cable to the hand controller may be bad. Meade sells these. Contact customer service at Meade.

The autostar on my ds-2114 ats has stopped working. new battiers were installed & power light works but no reads outs on hand controller.


Could just be a bad cable. See if you can find a new one or buy a new one from Meade.

You can also try reversing the cable. (depends on the Meade telescope). If a new cable does not fix it, then you will have to buy a new controller. Never plug or unplug the hand controller while the scope is turned ON.

Meade DS-2000 Manual Doesn't have info. about Meade Ds-2130


ds-2000 refers to the model line of the scope. ds-2130 the 130 refers to the diameter of the objective lens in mm. I have a ds-2114. Where the objective lens is 114 mm in diameter. as far as the manual goes everything else should be the same.
