Suite does not open port to DS 2080 telescope


What computer are you running? XP? Vista? Windows 7?

Also if you do not have a real serial port on the computer then you must use a USB to Serial adapter cable.

There is also new software on the Meade web site here:

I have a 10 year old Meade LX10 with Magellan computer. Do I need a separate power supply for the declination motor?


No, just one--- this scope runs off of 12 volt DC battery like a car starter battery pack-- that has a cigarette lighter style 12 volt cable. This plugs into the power console on the telescope. You need the proper 12 volt cable which you can get from Meade and other telescope retailers--
