The 360 rotation motor runs (Motor can be heard rinning) But the scope wont rotate. As the product is out of waranty, is it a problem that I could fix my self, as i'm pretty handy with a screw driver...


You can send this into Meade for repairs.

Or you can disassemble the base and look inside. I suspect you have either a loose or broken worm gear inside the base. There are manuals available on the Meade web site but they do not give any disassembly instructions. Call Meade at the phone number above or try taking apart the base and look inside. Only Meade will have replacement parts.

Both plastic gears for the slow motion control are broken on my Meade NGC tripod. Cannot find replacement parts.


ONLY Meade would have parts. You can call them and see if they will sell the parts and or a new tripod.

However you need to know that this is a "deal" scope sold by Meade in discount stores. It has a lot of PLASTIC everywhere and might be suitable for a child but is not very durable. Next time buy a 6 inch Dobsonian telescope for one that will last you for many many years of good service. Here is a picture of the DOB telescope, which is our #1 recommendation to beginners in the Astronomy hobby-

Only Meade will have this part-- they MIGHT sell you one??? but usually they want you to return the scope to them. Talk to several people there including a supervisor.

How do i use my meade DS2114 ATS-TC


Here is the manual:
http://www.meade.com/manuals/TelescopeManuals/Reflectors/DS2000%20manual.pdf

Read it TWICE! Then Calibrate Motors using the same power source you will use outside at night.

Then Train the drives, then enter time, date, daylight savings time =NO right now.

Do a two star automatic alignment.

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: 

Meade Instruments Corporation

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.

My goto telescope will not slew upwards.


If its new and defective I would strongly suggest you contact Meade tech support. They?ll get you fixed up and it should be covered by the warranty. If you need parts Meade?s web site has a store where you can buy them direct. If you don?t see what you need listed call them up and ask.
