Meade 10" LX6: I need to find what color wires connect to what pins in the Encoder Junction Box connector. Appears that several may be broken and I don't have a schematic. Does anyone have the schematic...


This is a very old LX6 telescope. I have never seen a schematic on the internet. Except for these articles:
http://www.astromag.co.uk/pdfs/lx6.pdf

This person may be able to help you:
http://www.onealwebsite.com/AstroPage/Telescopes.html

and this on page 33-34
http://skywatch.brainiac.com/used/used_sct.pdf

You can also call Meade directly and see if they have one:
http://www.meade.com/support/index.html

Finally, you can post a message on the Yahoo LX90 and LX200 group and ask for help from either Dr. Clay, or Ron Sampson. Both of these folks repair Meade brand telescopes.

This is a very old Meade SCT telescope. You can try contacting Meade customer service but I would doubt that they still have parts??

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

So, go to the Yahoo Groups LX200 forum and join and ask questions. Someone may have that model Meade SCT. Also there are people on the forum that can repair the circuits in the hand controller if something is blown.

Good luck.

Loose dirt on mirror Meade Lx6


Nope, the dust is on the webcam sensor. The telescope mirror is too far away to influence the image. Most modified cameras have no window to keep dust off the sensor's cover. A camera lens cleaning brush works fine. Also, some cameras have 'hot pixels' that are defects in the sensor, and are permanent.

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???

Actually, its NOT about an LX90, but rather my Meade LX6 10", f/6.3 scope...whos hand controller is displaying error messages from the encoders on power up. Can you help me? Great scooe, recent...


The motors have encoder wheels, that pulse when the motor turns, to tell the computer that everything is OK, and to indicate its position. If the wheel is loose on the shaft, then errors are indicated. A second point of error, is dirt in the wheel slots that disturb the sensing, or the optical pickup is bad.
