Only Meade would have the repair parts. Sorry. You will need to either use it as is, or purchase another telescope.

The telescope TUBE could be re-mounted on a photo tripod and used manually if you want to do this.

My Meade 90mm refractor with autostar has a stripped gear, crappy little nylon gear that drives the worm gear that rotates the telescope. Can I get relacement gears or do I have to get a new drive system....


No one but Meade makes parts for this scope. Do you intend to have a custom GEAR machined??? This will be more than just sending it back to Meade; which you will need to do to get it repaired.

Stripped gears on the focuser


Meade will not have parts, focusers are always replaced as an entire unit-- but if the mirror is still good you can buy a replacement focuser here:
