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:

You must flip the internal mirror between the upright view port and the rear camera port. See page #6 in this manual and look at #8 on that page.

It just pulls out!

I wonder if you are trying to remove the wrong end?
The end that opens to the sky is the one next to the eyepiece holder. If you're trying the other end which has lots of screws for adjusting the mirror, I hope you've not upset the delicate alignment!

Meade DS-2000 Manual Doesn't have info. about Meade Ds-2130


ds-2000 refers to the model line of the scope. ds-2130 the 130 refers to the diameter of the objective lens in mm. I have a ds-2114. Where the objective lens is 114 mm in diameter. as far as the manual goes everything else should be the same.

Computer control and pointing with NorthStar Goto & Autostar


Your reseller is correct. The wire (Meade cable #505) goes from an RS232 serial port on PC to a 4pin RJ plug. This plugs into the 2nd socket on the bottom of an Autostar 497 handset, the other socket being used for the curly lead to the telescope. So it goes PC to Autostar to telescope.

A common error is to try plugging the serial wire into an "AUX" ort on the telescope control panel - same connector. Not only does this not work, it can cause a lot of damage.

Wired like this you can control the scope from Meade's Autostar Suite (or many other planetarium softwares). You can also update the Autostar software to the latest 2009 version.

What else can go wrong? Well, many people want to control from a laptop, and modern ones don't have RS232 serial ports. Then you need a USB-to-serial convertor dongle, which effectively add a serial port to a laptop. But they often give it a very high port number (eg COM17) that the planetarium software does not find. Use Control Panel to reset the USB-serial-port to COM 1, 2, 3 or 4 and all should be well. But it can be a right fiddle!
