Hi, Original focus knob fell off my atx 70 and now the 'focus rod' goes inside the telescope instead of moving front part. Is there any way to fix it?


The knob had a tiny set screw on the side of it-- that tightened down on the shaft.

See if you can tighten it back up. If it is missing take it to a well stocked hard ware store and see if you can find a replacement Allen style set-screw.

If I look through the eye piece and see my own eye am I missing somthing?


You are NOT in focus-- turn the focus knob . You may need to turn it several times either to the right or the left. Use the eyepiece with the LARGEST number written on it and practice focusing during the daytime on a distant object.

Meade DS2102 Telescope lost teeth for focusing in and out


It might be easiest to see if someone is selling one on Craig's list or ebay.  You might be able to find one used where the telescope is OK, but the motorized drive is broken and replace the telescope.
Here is the contact information for Meade:
Contacting the Customer Support Center     Customer Support representatives are available to handle your calls and letters regarding any Meade product 7:00am to 5:00pm Pacific Standard Time, Monday through Friday, excluding holidays. To contact the Meade Customer Support Center, please write, call, or fax. Our information is as follows:

You could try calling them and see if they will sell the part you need for the focuser.  The focuser is called a rack and pinion focuser.  From your description it is hard to know if it is the long linear gear on the draw-tube (the part that holds the eyepiece) or the gear on the shaft of the focusing knob.  You will need to be able to describe that to them.
I hope that helps.

Can't focus my telescope


If there is nothing on the objective lenses or eyepiece lenses then it most likely needs collimation. This is where you adjust the secondary mirror while viewing an out of focus star. You need stable sky conditions to do this.

There are most likely three small screws at the front of the telescope and these are what you use to adjust it. As one screw is loosened then another is tightened. Do this in very small increments. If you have your manual it should outline how to perform this. If not go to this web site: http://www.astrosurf.com/legault/collim.html. It will show examples of how objects look both in and out of collimation. There is a section further down the page for SCTs.

A very handy tool for this is to replace your screws with Bob's Knobs (http://www.bobsknobs.com/) . These replace the screws and allow you to adjust it by hand instead of a screwdriver.

The other focusing problem I've experience with my Celestron SCT is to have the focus knob loosen up and then slip as I turned it so that I could never focus with it.

Good luck and clear skies!

Focus Issues


Try tightening the grub screw that fastens the knob onto the shft that it turns.

Better still, buy a flexible extended focusser which makes focussing much easier. Check on eBay for "Meade flexible focus"
