I can't get my Meade 10" Lightbridge telescope to focus in the eyepiece. I bought a Meade Laser Collimator and Collimated it last night outside before I tried to observe Jupiter and it still didn't...


Even if the scope is a little out of collimation it should still focus. Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser. DO NOT use a 2x barlow if you have one.

Try again--- you can do this during the day time on a distant object and practice turning the focus knob slowly left and or right until you get a sharp image.

The higher the magnification the smaller the "sweet spot" with the focuser.

Meade may or may not sell you the board. Usually they want you to return the scope for repair.

Call them and explain that you know how to fix it and only need the part. Ask to speak to a supervisor if you at first meet any resistance.

My 8" LX200GPS won't turn


Then it is an internal circuit board issue. Something is either unplugged inside the scope base-- or is burned out. Meade can repair these call them:

I have a meade lx200gps 10" scope. The ra up is not responing. the down is working only. After initializing and fining north the auto star says stalled motor.


Do a calibrate motors and make sure you are using a separate 12 volt power pack or BRAND NEW internal batteries. All goto scopes work better with smooth, regulated power. The internal batteries will NOT work well for very long.

The Calibrate motors routine adjusts the motors for the power supply being used.

Your scope may need collimation-- see these web sites:

Meade LX200GPS 16" out of calibration?


Before you panic I would update the firmware/software on the telescope. With an LX200 interface cable you can upgrade the software in your telescope from your PC by going to Meade's web site at www.meade.com

Download Meade's ASU (Autostar Update Utility) and the latest software for your Autostar II absolutely free. You can also use the ASU to add Comets, Asteroids, Satellites, and User Objects to your Autostar II with a few simple clicks of the mouse.

I believe you can get the manual here.

Point the scope to a distant object like the top of a telephone pole.

Without moving the telescope adjust the small screws on the finder scope to LINE-UP on the same object.
