Question about Meade Optics

1 Answer

Three weeks ago I ordered a Smarfinder LNT module and when it arrived I installed it on my DS 2114 18" reflector telescope. I turned it on and the Autostar handheld controller flickered and went out I turned it on again and the handheld flickers and goes off. I called Meade support in Irvine, Ca and they had no idea what the problem is. They thought the motor mount/computer was out of whack. Any suggestions as to what it is and what to do? Sam Blanco

Could be anything from a bad hand controller cable, LOW battery power, or a blown out hand controller.

Check the cable and the batteries first.

DS 2130 has become magnetized. Any easy solutions for demagnetizing same?


How do you know it is magnetized? Never heard of any telescope developing this issue during the last 30 YEARS!

What exactly is the scope doing wrong? describe the problem.

Model# 100501103 I need a new manual with assembley instructions. I purchasted the telescope several years ago. I now want to give it to my grandchildren but I can't find the instruction manual.


Sorry ut you will not find a manual for that small telescope. It's a reflector style telescope probably on an equatorial mount which must be polar aligned in order to be used.

Here is a Meade brand manual that is similar to your scope:

Probably your hand controller cable is broken. First thing to try is a new hand controller cable.

Also check the small watch style battery inside the LNT module.

If a new cable and a new battery do not fix this then it an internal circuit gone bad. Only Meade can repair this:

Try the new cable first.

Is it possible to set up the meade telescope ds-2114ats-lnt to have it set up outdoors and view indoors. Set up remotely in other words. I have the cables and software to navigate indoors but still have to...


It may be possible but expensive. You have to be able to control the scope remotely, AND transmit the image in the eyepiece inside.

Both are possible, however expensive, more than you paid for the entire telescope!

Also had the problem. I found that the LNT did not find north unless the bottom of the Smartfinder is close to parallel with the ground.
